Looking forward to the 2014 periodical cicada emergences

Magicicada I am excited about the 17 and 13 year cicada emergences expected in 2014.

Here is what we can look forward to:

I’m looking forward to taking some vacation time and tracking cicadas. Brood XXII is a good excuse to visit New Orleans (even if it isn’t on the cicada map).

Fun fact: Brood III and XXII won’t emerge in the same year again until the year 2235.

    Thanks for your info. My husband and I want to make a trip during the 17 year emergence in June. Do you have an estimate about what part of June would be best..and are your taking into account climate changes in your estimate? Would you recommend a particular area?

    Also, do they cause damages to crops or environment?

    thanks again,
    Lori and Cullen Proctor

      The part of June when it’s warm enough for them to emerge, which is typically after the ground reaches a consistent temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Where… I listed some counties in the Brood III post. I don’t have exact towns, yet.
