    Is it next year the cicadas will be in Indiana and what month do they come out and also the month they disappear I have a above pool and was wondering if the cicadas will try to get in my pool do they sting or bite

      @Denise, yes 2021 will be a big year for periodical cicadas in Indiana. They do get into pools in the same way dead leaves do. They don’t sting. They don’t bite, but they can pierce and suck — but not out of anger like a wasp — they’re just dumb and mistake fingers for tree branches.
