Cicada Phobia and Washington Post Article

by Michael Reeder on May 20, 2013

I was quoted in an article in Saturday’s Washington Post entitled Bug-phobic dread the looming swarm of Brood II cicadas.

I was very happy to help explain phobias and what a person might do to combat them.

I provided the reporter with quite a bit more information than was quoted (he of course consulted several sources) — here is the link to the complete notes I put together on this topic for those interested in this or any other phobia.

My earlier blog entry and the newspaper article it referenced explain that Baltimore should be largely spared of cicadas this year!
