Here comes cicada brood XIX!

Chris Simon at UConn mentioned this website to me recently, which is dedicated to all things Magicicada: There are pages for natural history, behavior, and even a reporting mechanism. Brood XIX is scheduled to emerge as adults this year, and it looks like they’ve already reared their beautiful heads in South Carolina and northern Georgia:

Get ready, North Carolina! We’re next. Have you seen any periodical cicadas emerge? Do you have some cool photos of the cicada madness? Raleigh has historically been one of the centers for Brood XIX’s emergence, so I am preparing my SD card, my insect pins, and my wok. Bring ‘em on!
