See Pictures of damaged trees - Cicadas cause serious damage, and can even kill trees and bushes.

Tip: After they emerge, you still have time to cover up small trees and shrubs. They won't begin to do damage for a couple of weeks.  We recommend 1/4" pest netting for effective cicada protection.

2019 Cicada Watch - Sightings by State
State/City: Arrived:
Ohio A major emergence is exected in portions of the state in the spring.
Pennsylvania A major emergence is exected in portions of the state in the spring.
West Virginia A major emergence is exected in portions of the state in the spring.


Cicada Protection and Control:

Insect Nettings are the most effective way to provide protection for your young trees, which are most susceptible. Because Cicada are large insects, a 1/4" mesh netting is effective. Wrap netting completely around the tree. Tie or seal it off at the bottom.

Important Note: Even if the Cicadas have emerged in your area, you have 5-10 days to cover young trees before the female begins to cause damage, as she lays her eggs.
