Something may soon be bugging you. Or at least bugging your ears. We've waited 17 years to tell you about it, but now we will. There's a new cicada in town and it's beginning to make a lot of racket. As a professor of biology with an interest in insects, Commentator John "Richard' Schrock never met a bug he didn't like. And he finds this critter absolutely fascinating.

Commentator John "Richard" Schrock is the director of biology education at Emporia State University, where he trains future biology teachers. He's also a regular contributor to Kansas Public Radio.
