The Song of Cicadas
Male cicadas are well known for their “song”.  They rest on a tree and produce a whining sound to attract females.  The sound is produced by two vibrating membranes on the side of the abdomen.  Females do not “sing”. Adults feed on juices from tender twigs, but usually do not cause lasting harm to the plant from feeding.
