Key Points:

In Conclusion

Prepare yourself for the emergence of cicada swarms in certain parts of the United States. These harmless yet annoying insects will be making their way out of the ground after a 17-year cycle. Brood X, one of the largest groups of cicadas in the country, is expected to emerge in 2021. If you live in states such as Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, or Washington D.C., you may witness these cicada swarms. Homeowners should protect their plants from potential damage, while outdoor workers should be prepared for the increased presence and buzzing noise of cicadas.
