    Missouri Cicada Infestation


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jonboy74 shot this video on May 26 of an infestation of 13-year cicadas in Columbia, MO, as they begin to emerge from the ground. 'Small numbers of cicadas began emerging approximately 1 week earlier, but the infestation you saw had just ramped up over the last three to four days prior,' he said. 'They seem to love the mature maple trees.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    The 13 year cicada's, brood XIX, are back in Columbia, Missouri. They won't return until 2024. Here's a look at what it's like to walk among and on top of these things. Not for the squeamish!
