Cicadas are coming!

Get ready because this spring, two different cicada broods will be emerging at the same time.  A 13-year group and a 17-year group.  It’s rare for two different broods to emerge at the same time.  Last time that this happened was back in 1803.  These broods won’t sync up together again for another 221 years.

The cicadas emerging will take place in the Midwest and the Southeast sometime in May/June.  Once the soil temperature reaches 65 degrees they will emerge.

Here’s the Map from the USDA-  CicadaBroodStaticMap

Our main 17 year brood for Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania area won’t be for another 6 years… in 2030.

My chickens love eating the cicadas.
