What happens to cicada husks?
You've probably discovered the molted exoskeletons of cicadas still attached to trees, leaves, and fences. Although you might think that the animals that eat cicadas might want to eat those too, they actually don't. Instead, strong winds and rain eventually knock them to the ground. Once there, they're walked on and broken down where they eventually combine with the soil. We'll be talking all about cicadas later this week!
