How to use cicada in a sentence?

  1. Cortni Borgerson:

    You’ll be able to hear when you’re close, these cicadas live as nymphs underground for 17 years, and then tunnel up through the ground to the surface where they shed into their winged adult phase, living only 4-6 weeks. Cicada are tastiest in their teneral stage, which is right after they’ve shed into their adult forms, but are still pale while before their exoskeletons have hardened.

  2. Cortni Borgerson:

    A shellfish allergy increases the likelihood that you will be allergic to cicada, so it’s better to be safe than sorry and abstain from land arthropods if you can’t eat their sea swimming cousins.
