5. Their lifespan is four to six weeks, and they will start to die off in late June into July.

The nymphs, however, will be hibernating and maturing for the next 17 years.

18. Yep, Just A Few Weeks

Being trapped in the car doesn't much matter -- the adult cicadas don't eat, and heat just makes them more active (unless it gets to the point where you couldn't sit down on the car seats).

12. I remember the cicadas screaming in the trees while I was growing up in Texas.

Honestly, there should be a decibel level specific to cicadas, and it should be considered a risk factor for hearing loss...

16. Put a cat in the car for the night.

My friend put my cat in his car to get a mouse he could not get out. Just one night was all it took.
