The tri-state area is preparing for an invasion of cicadas.

The noisy bugs are coming back after 17 years of living underground.

Experts say it's part of their natural life cycle.

They are expected to emerge when soil temperatures hit 64 degrees.

Cicadas are mostly harmless, but they can create a lot of noise with their loud buzzing.

Some areas could see as many as a billion cicadas per square mile.
