BROOD XXII of the 13 year periodical cicadas - Posted March 24, 2014

This coming April and May, Louisiana will experience an emergence of 13-year periodical cicadas (Brood XXII). We have received an inquiry from Dr. Chris Simon (Univ. Connecticut), who has been studying cicadas for many years. She is requesting information on localities where Brood XXII cicadas will be emerging (mostly this coming April-May), and previous localities from the 2001 emergence from anyone who remembers. Please spread the word to your friends and colleagues and post your observations to the website below or send them directly to the LSAM Director, Dr. Chris Carlton. He will compile the information and pass it on to Dr. Simon. For more information and to post observations of periodical cicada emergences, visit the Magicicada website.
