READY OR NOT, THEY'RE COMING! The cicadas will be emerging any day now!! This morning students in AP Biology and Field Ecology classes at Milford High School learned all about cicadas from the cicada expert himself, Dr. Gene Kritsky from Mt. Saint Joseph University.
 
Milford High School is now home to a “Brood X Periodical Cicada Research Station” and students will help to track the insects by monitoring soil temperature, studying cast skin, studying population, identifying species and sex, studying their singing and behavior, and filling in a distribution map. Buzz buzz!
