Cicadas not living up to hype

This year's brood two cicadas are currently popping up on the east coast -- but not quite with the drama we initially expected.

For more stories like this follow us on Twitter @myfoxdc and Facebook/myfoxdc.

We've seen pictures of cicadas in Western Fairfax County, Prince William County and down around Fredericksburg and Stafford.

We’ve also seen them in parts of southern Maryland.

But what about the District and the close in suburbs?

Experts say bug lovers may be out of luck!

It is difficult to track cicadas because there was not a lot of research technology available seventeen years ago when the brood two group last came around.

The National Geographic Society is currently working to improve tracking patterns of the cicadas for the future.
