I know, I know.

This sounds crazy.

But it is one hundred percent true.

Until you have seen a cicada wake up and pee, you don't know how serious this warning is for all of us.


In some areas people carry umbrellas to avoid these creatures and the steady stream of urine they unleash.


So, check out this video of a cicada taking a "leak", so to speak.

Now, that is something to be concerned about.

It never stops.

The cicada just keeps going and going and going.


You see, according to CBS News, more than a trillion (that's right, a TRILLION) loud, screeching cicadas will be waking up from their slumber.

What's the first thing you do after waking up from a long nap?

Well, imagine if you had been asleep for nearly two decades.

This warning comes from scientists who let us know that cicadas do not leave a drop here and there.

The insects spray a powerful jet of urine on anything around them.

That's the first time I have ever used "jet" and "urine" in the same sentence.


These dang bugs are hard to avoid when you start talking about a TRILLION of them.

A couple of years back, they were so loud in Northport during summer nights, that you could hear them even with your TV or car radio blasting.

So, how harmful is this cicada pee?


According to those science "folks" cicada pee is harmless.

I don't care! I still do not want any of it squirting on me while I'm in my backyard.

They're coming....so you better get ready.
