Cicada is a large insect with long transparent wings, occurring chiefly in warm countries. The male cicada makes a loud shrill droning noise by vibrating two membranes on its abdomen.

Cicadas can be used as food and medicine. Cicadas can improve global food security: They're cheap, plentiful and environmentally sustainable. Besides, cicada recipes are low-carb, gluten-free food. Blanched, boiled, or candied, cicadas are healthy snacks. Catching cicadas by hand is not always easy because they can be in high tree branches. This is one of interesting way to catch cicadas:

+ Split bamboo into many small pieces, knit them to make a basket. Then, make a basket helve by a long bamboo trunk.  

+ Use this basket to grasp cicadas

+ Put cicadas into a bamboo tube


 

 After catching cicadas, set a fire and put all cicadas in a bamboo piece to fry them. You can make delicious fried cicadas in a short time.

Good luck with this simple but great cicada trapping method. Enjoy this food in your own way.

    The wife would like to catch and kill every single one of them on the planet.   She hates that noise.

    I love the sound.  In Mn, hearing cicadas meant it was the last part of summer, enjoy it while you can.  In Florida, it means your still alive and in florida.

    It actually means there is a large male insect nearby trying to get laid....maybe you were a female cicada in a former life?

    They only hatch out every 17 yrs.  You'd starve to death by then.

    Looks like Valeriecat got a new name.

    Italian name. It derived from Laura which means laurel (laurus in Latin, alloro in modern Italian).
