Do you hear that loud Buzzing noise outside in the summer?

Desert Cicadas Buzzing can be heard up to 400 yards away. I always joke that it will give me brain cancer!  These summertime musicians travel around by flight, and like to be on bushes and trees.  Cicadas look like a HUGE fly with big buggy eyes.  They outgrow their skin and leave their old empty shell behind on trees, bushes and covered porches.  Cicadas feed on sap, and have a mouth designed to pierce and suck.

Why do Desert Cicadas make that buzzing noise?   Male Cicadas make the buzzing sound to attract a mate.
