(WUSA9) -- Get ready: when the ground temperature reaches the mid-60s, the invasion will begin!
After a 17 year break, we'll see millions of cicadas start to rise from the ground and being their never ending noisy song. Experts think we'll see them emerge next week.
But some of us may escape these pests. Delia Goncalves explains in the video.
The cicadas will live for 4 to 6 weeks above ground and die. Fairfax County does not recommend using insecticides because that will kill other beneficial insects.
