Cicadas Are Here

Please Report What You See:

Now that an early emergence has been confirmed, we still need your help with documenting important periodical cicada mileposts.  Please report any or all of the following using this e-mail address; please include location and if possible pictures:


  • Are you seeing periodical cicada adults?
  • Are you seeing cast skins hanging on tree bark?
  • Are males "singing?"  Periodical cicadas make a unique buzzing sound; they don't sound like any other insect or animal.
  • Are males "chorusing?"  If there are enough of them, the males will start synchronizing their singing to almost sound like a single, loud individual.
  • Are cicadas mating?
  • Are females jabbing their eggs into tree stems?
  • Do you see tree stem dieback damage?
