WQCB cites UMaine Extension information about cicadas

In a story about finding a cicada in Maine, WQCB-FM (Q106.5) cited information from University of Maine Cooperative Extension that assisted in identifying the article’s author in identifying the exoskeleton of the insect. According to UMaine Extension, these typically southern bugs are often found in Maine during the dog days of summer — late July and August. They can stay burrowed underground for up to five years but, each year, some of them will emerge.
