Subject: What is this?
Geographic location of the bug: Lucedale, MS
Time: 11:44 AM EDT
Your letter to the bugman: I have found 3 of this insect in my backyard. 2 were dead and last one was alive. Then, I found 3 holes in the ground possibly the same size as the insect. My dog started digging and sniffing at the holes and then ran as if it something scared him.
How you want your letter signed: Trimica
This is a Cicada nymph and it has been living underground for several years, so the holes you found might be associated with it.
