Chimneys – Brood II Magicicada from Metuchen, New Jersey (2013)

Filed under: Brood II,Chimneys,Magicicada — Dan @ 9:31 am

These are some small cicada chimneys created by Magicicada during Brood II in 2013 in Metuchen. Magicicadas occasionally create chimneys above the holes they emerge from — more often when the soil is wet or ground is shadowed (under a deck, in a lawn mower shed). These were shaded by a large pine.
