Some of our readers might remember the so-called cicada plague that much of the U.S. suffered through during the summer of 2013.

Well, as it turns out, cicadas actually hatch much more regularly than you think, depending on which region of the country you're talking about.

This year, the state of Ohio is one of those that has to bear the creepy grossness that is the emergence of a new cicada brood. If you think that they're not that bad, just wait until you see these pictures from Redditor FourFootGecko.

There are mounds of cicada shells at the base of seemingly every structure.

Having gone through this same thing in New York a few years ago, I'm sending good vibes to Ohio. Cicadas might be harmless, but they're still no fun. Oh, and they're ridiculously loud.

Good luck getting any sleep for the next few weeks…
