According to messages left on this site, as well as the magicicada.org map, Brood II cicadas have emerged in New Jersey and New York. I’m in New Jersey, and I plan on looking for cicadas this weekend.
Brood II stragglers are emerging (4 years ahead of schedule) in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and New York.
Brood XIV stragglers are emerging (1 year after they’re supposed to) in Ohio.
I found some skins in Metuchen, NJ tonight. Apologies for the quality of the photo — I only had my cell phone with me.
Scotch Plains area has great amount of these cicadas.
Heard cicadas, but have not seend them in South Jersey.
We have them here in Durham North Carolina. Started hearing them 2 or 3 days ago and have found them just down the road from me. They are real LOUD! These are Brood 19 from what I can gather.
I have seen 2 cicadas in Brooklyn, New York in the past 2 days. August 21, 2010.
There are a TON of them in Ridgewood, NJ where I live. How long do these puppies stay alive?
Brian, the Tibicens that are out now will be around for the rest of the summer.
If you are searching, hit Fanwood. Lots of houses have them. Mine still has a bunch. I took some more photos of them:
