WHAT IS HAPPENING THOUGH IM FRIGHTENED

WHEN CICADAS LEAVE THE GROUND THERE ONLY NYMPHS AND THEY DON’T HAVE WINGS SO THEY LATCH ONTO SOMETHING FOR WHATEVER REASON AND MOLT OUT OF THE NYMPH BODY TO BECOME ADULTS WITH WINGS AND THEN COMES THE SCREAMING STARTS

THANK YOU FOR THE EXPLANATION @notyourgrandfather THAT IS CORRECT

@peanutworm PLEASE ENJOY THIS GIFSET OF A STICK INSECT MOLTING [link], IT IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME PROCESS

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON NYMPHS AND INCOMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS, PLEASE ALSO ENJOY THIS SHORT POST I MADE ABOUT IT [link]. NOT ALL INSECTS HAVE A LARVA PHASE LIKE BUTTERFLIES AND BEES, ETC.
