(New York Daily News) Billions of bugs are set to swarm the East Coast this Spring.

Flying insects will descend on cities, towns and villages from New England to North Carolina as part of a natural phenomenon that only occurs once every 17 years.

Brood II cicadas will emerge for the first time since 1996 to cover areas hotter than 64 degrees from mid-April to late May.
