Periodical Cicada Brood Emergence Schedule

Periodic Cicada, Adult

Periodical cicadas emerge in a 13 or 17 year cycle. Emergences are identified as "Broods". The table below identifies, when they emerge, and the states that are affected. When a brood emerges, it may impact all or just part of the state.

For heavy emergences, you should take steps to protect trees and shrubs that are susceptible to damage. See a list  of susceptible plants below.

Pest netting wrapped completely around the tree or shrub is effective. The mesh needs to be 1/4" to keep them out.

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.

Cicada  and Locust Protection and Control:

cicadas pest netting control, ciciada insect

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.
