Insecticides are ineffective on these large insects.
Insect Netting is the most effective way to protect young trees and shrubs, which are most susceptible. Because Cicadas are large insects, 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.
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.
