What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

What bugs is this?
Found these in a garden in the North Quabbin Area of Franklin County, MA. These things are everywhere and we cannot seem to figure out what they are or how to get rid of them.
Thanks!
Phillip

Hi Phillip,
This is a skin from a Cicada. Cicada nymphs live underground and feed off of the sap from tree roots. They then dig to the surface, split their skins for the final time and emerge as winged adults. They are probably buzzing in your trees now. Sorry we have no erradication advice.
