      I grew up in the Texas Panhandle. They were everywhere! They burrow in holes in the ground. We used to catch them as kids by pouring water down their hole. When the water started to drain, we knew it was coming up and we'd put a jelly jar over the hole. We'd watch it for a bit before letting it go. To see one of them flying by like a drone, carrying a full grown cicada is very impressive!
