Early and Late Brood Emergence: On occasion, an emergence comes earlier or later than expected in some areas. When an emergence is off by a year or more, it is called "Straggling".  In 17 year cycles, emergences four years early have been documented.

Learn about Cicadas


Affected Trees, Bushes and Shrubs:

Female cicadas seek woody stalks, 1/2 inch or less in diameter. Pines are not bothered, because of the sap. Any trees from soft gum trees to medium beech, apple, etc to harder woods such as maples, oaks, hickory. The real key is branches that are 1/2" to 1" in diameter or less, with long open sections where they can "stitch" (lay) eggs.

Insect Netting is the most effective way to provide protection for young trees and shrubs, which are most susceptible. Because Cicada are large insects, a 1/4" mesh netting is effective. Wrap pest netting completely around the tree and tie or seal it off, to keep any insects from finding an entryway.

Buy Pest Netting-  It's the best cicada and locust prevention. Find bags and sheet sizes to protect against Cicada, locust, birds, deer bunnies, and other pests.
