Insecticides are ineffective on these large insects.

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.

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.

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.
