How do cicadas make their buzzing sound?

A. Male cicadas have a pair of organs on the first segment of the abdomen. Each is basically a cavity with a lid. Inside is a membrane called a tymbal. The insect uses its muscles to make this membrane vibrate. This vibration creates the buzz, which the male uses to attract a mate.
