The first Brood XII sighting (sort of)

Filed under: Brood XIII — Dan @ 10:20 am

Rene reported on the message board that she saw Magicicada nymphs in holes in a friend’s garden in SE Elmhurst Illinois.

We’re currently expecting the emergence to start on May 24th, but the hot weekend might have roused the cicadas to an early start. We’ll see.

    The formula comes from Gene Kritsky. Go to the homepage and look for the link to the formula.

    It is difficult to predict the emergence. Where did you get the idea that the emergence to start on May 24th.
    I would appreciate your response.
