Get ready to hear that eerie noise that can only come from a cicada.

Experts say a massive amount of the noisy bugs are making their way to the skies after 17-years underground.

As many as 1.5 million cicadas may emerge in parts of Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.

The insects do not pose a threat to people. They don’t bite or sting, but they could damage trees.
