Nature's Thermometers

Ever wonder what the temperature is?

In summer you can use an insect "thermometer" to find out:
count a cricket's chirps for 14 seconds & add 40 to get the degrees in Fahrenheit.

Are the cicadas singing? If so, it must at least 83 degrees Fahrenheit.
Listen for a katydid. If it says "Katy-did-it," the temperature is at least 78 degrees F; "Katy-did," 72 degrees F; "Kaytee," 65; or "Kate," 58.
