    no need. in DC, every restaurant and eatery has Cicada of some kind on the menu. They're doing the same thing with the Snakehead Fish that's been increasingly prevalent along the Potomac.

    I've been advocating this for awhile: if nature evolves a pest, define it as a delicacy. For thousands of years our most effective method of controlling nature is eating it.

    How are these different from the cicadas that are already here? I realize it is not the same brood emerging every year, but there never seems to be a shortage of them

    no. these are the ones that jump whenever a boat drives by. they are killing off native species in record time and they are spreading like a disease. they apparently taste like crap too.
