Since cicadas are on everyone's mind now,here is a good tool to predict your area

Very easy chart of the cycles,in each state.


This page has a chart,which shows where and when the cicada schedule will be in your area,
just look for the map of your state. It also shows all the past and future emerges of the 13 year and the 17 year.

Feel free to kick this up for the morning shift on DU....I;m gonna take my night owl self off to bed.

1. Fortunately, they will not be in my area, and I am very happy about that.

I know they are harmless, but I absolutely hate insects of any kind and would never leave my apartment if they were in my area.

I have a morbid fear of bugs of any kind. I can't even stand to see a picture of them.

4. That's a pretty big area - doesn't look like there's much chance of escape...

5. Plague: check. Locusts: check. Pestilence: voted out of office.

The only thing left on my bingo card is a reboot of My Mother the Car.

7. What is the big deal with cicadas, they make noise for a few weeks then go away for

17 f--g years? I hope I live to see them again. They are completely harmless and I think the minor damage they do to
trees actually stimulates growth the following year. I was worried about the damage on my young Japanese Red Maple and
a Variegated Chinese Dogwood. In the fall I trimmed off the damaged limbs and the next year they were fuller and more beautiful than ever.

9. The noise they make can be overwhelming.



It's high pitched and drowns out most other outdoor sounds,unrelenting,all day/night long,for weeks.

Here's a taste of what I hear:

8. Looks like Florida doesn't get them.

Good. I thought I was going to have to bring in my plants into the patio to protect them.

11. They only harm some trees not flowers

or vegetable plants. They eat nothing.

16. Disappointed so far in Virginia; I'm only seeing a few.

I do hear the females whirring in the distance, but only one or two males buzzing.

17. I'm actually disappointed we don't get them in Florida.

As a nature fan I would love to see it. The wife’s from the Midwest and she remembers 2 broods.
