Who ate all the oak leaves? Katy did

This report forwarded to us from Hays Master Naturalists:
The hill country is currently experiencing a major outbreak of red katydids. They are currently in the nymph stage. When they develop wings later this month, they’ll start singing day and night. They feed primarily on oak trees. I’ve received reports from the following counties:

Bandera, Bexar, Burnet, Comal, Hays, Kerr, Medina, Menard, Schleicher,
Tom Green, Travis and Williamson counties

Here’s some links to information on the red katydid: – sound file of
what’s coming…
Please share this information with your members.
Thanks, Mike Quinn, Austin
