Cicada North Carolina
Just looking at the Cicada’s on your site and realized you did not have a picture of the Cicada from Asheville, North Carolina that’s been “bugging” us this year, I am having a lot of fun with these bugs.

Hi Nadine,
We have numerous images of Periodical Cicadas, Magicicada septendecim, also known as the 17 Year Locust. This is a member of Brood XIV and it is the second image of the species we have received this year. The first was from Ohio.

    will the Cicada kill trees and plants?

      We imagine if the nymphs are plentiful enough, and if there are unusual conditions like a drought, it is possible, but not likely.
