Male cicadas, or locusts, generate a whirring sound when two ribbed, platelike membranes on their thorax called tymbals are clicked against each other. The sound is amplified by air sacs in the abdomen. This noise is the loudest mating call of the insect world, sometimes registering over 100 decibels. The females of the species do not produce sound but respond to the male’s song by flicking her wings.
