Brood XIV Stragglers in Ohio

Filed under: Brood XIV,Magicicada,Roy Troutman — Dan @ 8:58 pm

Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Wisconsin aren’t the only states that can look forward to periodic cicadas.

Brood XIV stragglers are beginning to emerge in Ohio. So far we’ve had reports of chimneys from Roy and some photos of nymphs taken by Matt Berger in Terrace Park, Ohio (hopefully he’ll let us post the pics). Stragglers are periodic cicadas the emerge a year or more ahead or behind schedule. Brood XIV is due to emerge in many states next year (KY, GA, IN, MA, MD, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TN, VA, WVA), but a few will emerge this year instead.

Here’s a photo of a cicada chimney taken by Roy Troutman in Ohio.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to where the Brood XIV is expected to have the most dramatic appearances? I guess
    I’m really asking where the best shows were in 1991! I’m in western NC but also travel considerably throughout the
    mapped range, especially PA and OH, so I’m interested in reports from anywhere. Thanks!
