Dedicated to cicadas, the most amazing insects in the world.
For the best cicada experiences, would the Smoky Mountain area near Knoxville and Owensboro, KY be good places in mid-May 2021? I will be making a cross-country trip to see them and wouldn’t want to miss this massive brood. Thank you.
Knoxville itself, but not the mountains.
Will the 17 yr cicadas emerge north of Chicago by the Wisconsin state line. Third Lake Il
I have seen 4 of the red eyed periodical cicadas this week. Moving about and one emerging from its exoskeleton on a crepe myrtle trunk. We are on Arthur Minnis Road in Hillsborough NC and last saw these in full force May of 2011. Are these stragglers of Brood XIX?
Would appreciate any information! Thanks,
@Ippy, that sounds like Brood XIX emerging 4 years early — very unusual for a 13 year brood — but others are reporting this as well! Thanks!
they are all over my yard this week in south Charlotte NC!
