5. The cicada heard the high-pitched, keening whine

they tunnel into the rafters in our horse barn and have damn near wrecked it! And the buggers are hard as hell to kill. Best thing I've found is just swat the shit outta them with an old tennis racket! ;-)

They'll try to intimadate you but they have no stingers. :D

edit: just looked at ur profile, never heard of Liberty, OK ... I'm in Wagoner and was intensely into ham radio for years but lost interest...
