    Man you missed the (cicada) boat. You need to Mothman this – after all, it had to be a cicada, just a different prime number year/Brood. Second, why not the Lockdown cicada tee? Emerging after 17 years y’all and ok with it – when globally we are a mess after only 1 year.

  2. Diana Cline says:

    where is the KEEP CALM it’s only the 17 year CICADA shirt? I need to order 10. Also need to know if you have it in a wide strap tank top.

    1. Dan says:

      Here and Here.

      Look for the “Transfer design to a product” section & “View all products” to transfer to other products.

    Got my 2021 Brood X shirt, but I had Zazzle change the “17 years underground…” caption box to simply “Hello, Ohio!” Great shirt! Thank you!

    1. Dan says:

      That’s cool!

  4. Sonja reuter says:

    How do you cover trees to keep the eggs off. From the root up or wrap the tree or just the top part of the tree?

    1. Dan says:

      You could do both, but once they’re adults they can fly from a neighbor’s yard to your trees, so the netting would stop them. Tape helps in the beginning — the first few days when they can only crawl. After that netting helps keep of the ones that have matured and can fly (which is all of them able a week in).

  5. Patty Rehn says:

    Great site!!
    I’d love a T-shirt with just the Brood X Logo. I’ll keep checking for it!

  6. Rena Lee says:

    i want one like on your sites opening screen “Brood X 2021 “. The other designs are not as cool at all. Please, please sell the Brood x shirts with the big cicada !!!

  7. Gail says:

    I’ve worn my 2004 baseball style brood x t-shirt a lot in the intervening 17 years. I’d love to have a 2021 version. I liked the old design just fine including the names of all the states on the back. I have so many great memories of 2004 when I was teaching a 3rd grade class. I love that this website is still here. Obviously I, like the cicadas, was underground (in terms of following this site), during the intervening years. Glad to find it again.

  8. Liz Crafford says:

    I really like the Brood X logo at the top of the Brood X page and think it would look great on a black shirt. Any plans to make any? I’d love a couple….

    1. Dan says:

      Yes, I’ll make that soon.

      1. Liz Crafford says:

        Can’t wait!

        1. Cameron says:

          Cant wait either!!

    2. Rena Lee says:

      Hah, just asked the same question about the Brood X tshirt, didn’t see your comment first. If/ when they make them, i will buy it. Can’t wait.

      1. Deb says:

        Me too!

  9. Bob says:

    I still have my yellow Brood X t-shirt from 2004. Are you offering another one this year??? (The one for 2004 is a little “worn”…)

    1. Dan says:

      I will. Did you like the old design?

      1. Bob says:

        Yes, I did like it. Would love a color choice or 2 other than yellow.
