  1. Kent,
    I’ve been reading about the upcoming 17-yr cicada explosion that we should be expecting this year. Some articles that I have read are putting the estimates in the billions, or even trillions, of insects that will emerge. With that many insects, it seems like the odds are in favor of cicadas being a readily available food source. Any thoughts on cicada flies to add to this list?

    Keep up the GREAT work.


  2. Hey y’all. Just wanted to say thanks for putting my fly on the list. You guys have some awesome blog entries. I really enjoy reading them.
