I hear it. Is it some sort of cricket? How long have you lived there?

I, as well as family and friends, have been hearing this strange sound in the atmosphere since Thursday the 21st. Listen closely among the birds chirping and the sole vehicle drive by and you will hear the high pitch whine. It does not alternate/fluctuate at all and has been continuous for five days now.
.............located in central Arkansas.
a reply to: Greathouse having grown up in an area that broke records with its cicada broods, i disagree with your hypothesis, this sound is nothing like a cicada brood, so no your statement of how long you've been listening to cicadas does not venerate your opinion.

In our area that "weird" sound everyone is reporting is cicadas! Young'uns are freaking out on social media I'm told.
The foundation on the west side of our house was covered in them a few days ago. Until the rain washed them away their shells were on everything. For our area it is a 13 year brood according to the UK Ag site. www2.ca.uky.edu...
Driving through a heavily-wooded wetland last night, it did indeed sound mechanical and very alien.
