Uses

"You caught # Sand Cicada! The larvae of these bugs stay underground for 10 years or longer. No bug is harder to catch!"

— In-game Description[1]

The Sand Cicada is a collectible insect found in Skyward Sword. They are fairly rare and found only in Lanayru Desert.[2] They are found on walls and emit a loud noise. Link can capture them with his Bug Net, but it requires a very slow approach to be successful otherwise they will fly away.[3] They are used in upgrading Potions, specifically the Heart Potion and Revitalizing Potion.
