Cicadas coming by the trillions ot 15 states

In the coming days, a couple weeks tops, trillions of Brood X cicadas will emerge from the ground for the first time in 17 years.

Though there are numerous broods of cicadas, Brood X comes out in the largest numbers.

The brood will emerge in large quantities, covering surfaces en masse and emitting the sounds of a nonstop lawnmower. Brood X will appear in 15 states and jurisdictions: Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Upon emerging, University of Maryland entomologist Michael Raupp described the Brood X cicada’s lifecycle as a mix of a survivalist thriller and a romance novel.
