It is kinda gross, but here is what is making all that noise

(KFVS) -

All that buzzing. All summer. 

After a while it starts to sound like everyone has decided to mow their lawns at one time. 

But they haven't. 

What I am hearing are cicadas. 

And if you have been in the south in the summer, you know what I am talking about.

The large, seemingly invisible bugs that make a droning noise that seems to come from nowhere, and everywhere. 

You know that they are around. You find their empty shells at the bottom of trees or on the side of brick houses. Small brown little monster shells. With claws as hands.

And seemingly out of nowhere, my wife finds one that is molting - I guess that is what it does. 

The green extra large monster is leaving behind its shell.
