The Double Drummer is Australia’s largest cicada and the world’s loudest - so loud, in fact, that birds can’t stand to sit in the same tree as a swarm, which can reach levels of 120 decibels!
Male cicadas create sound and attract females with specialized vibrating membranes called tymbals. Double Drummer males have unique sac-like coverings over both tymbals, which amplify their call and give them their name.
At 5.5 inches wide, this embroidered patch is approximately life-sized and ready to apply to your jacket, tote, jeans, or other tightly woven fabrics. Iron on HIGH for beauty that lasts.
