Wanna know how bad it really is?  A woman in Chicago posted a TikTok of herself refusing to get out of her car because the amount of cicadas leading up to her house was freaking her out.  At this point, they've become a phobia for many people.

Take a look at the video emirosesneed posted:

This cicada invasion has turned simple tasks, like walking to the door, into a terrifying challenge.  You're not alone if you fear these insects... soon, it'll be over.  Experts say the emergence could last through mid-June.
