Cycling Cicadas

For all of the high-tech science that cicadas are providing the researchers at North Carolina Central University’s Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise (BRITE), it seems only fitting to talk a little more about the mysterious insects. That’s because there might not be another insect that provokes more emotional reaction than the periodical cicada; a creature that you will only find between the eastern half of the Great Plains and the Atlantic Coast.

That’s right.

Periodical cicadas are not found anywhere else on Earth.
