Possibly . . .

. . . old news, but . . .



(https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/brood-awakening-17-year-cicadas-emerge-4-years-early/)
". . . Swarms of cicadas are unexpectedly crawling out from under trees from North Carolina to New Jersey. . . they chirp en masse for their mates, producing a relentless, shrill buzz that is recognized as a song of summer. And within a month they are gone. . . Different populations, or broods, of “periodical” cicadas emerge in distinct geographical regions during specific years, after spending a 13- or 17-year span growing underground. . . Scientists were expecting to see Brood VI bugs in South Carolina and Georgia, which happened, but they got a surprise when Brood X cicadas also started appearing in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Ohio and Indiana last week—four years earlier than anticipated. . . Experts suspect a warming climate, with more warm weeks a year during which the underground nymphs can grow, could be triggering some cicadas to emerge ahead of their brood. . . "
