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

They believe as many as one and a half 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.
