Great photos. Im Wisconsin, we used to call them Heat Bugs, because the hotter it got, the louder they were. We have the regular old green ones around here. Have not seen any of the orange eyed ones.
Perhaps it's the 13-year cicada to which you are referring then. There are different broods that have different cycles. The one in this post is the 13-year one that also happens to be the largest brood in the world.
My dog is less than fifteen years old and I've seen him eating those husks during several summers. That's the only thing I've got to go by, tho.
I can look at almost any tree outside right now and find several. I shook a small apple tree and about 6 or 8 flew out. Looked at another tree near by and found about 10 without even looking hard. Shed has a couple of dozen husks.
I guess they're gone for the most part. I see a few now and then, but nothing like they were. Not hardly any noise from them either. A few weeks back it was almost deafening.
