Brood VI 17 year periodical cicadas are expected in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia in the spring of 2017.  Cicadas emerge when soil temperatures reach 64 degrees.  This brood last emerged in these states in 2000. For additional information about Brood VI visit Cicada Mania.

Cicadas, popularly known as locusts, are not harmful to humans, but significant damage to young trees and shrubs can occur when egg-laying females burrow into thin branches.  Cicada adults (locusts) are identified by their black bodies and red eyes. Please refer to Good Gardening and University of Kentucky Entomology for more information regarding the Cicada insect.

Disposable plastic netting, 
made out of polypropylene resin, can prevent insects from laying their eggs in the twigs of small trees and shrubs. This is the perfect application for Cicada prevention!

For installation of Cicada Netting, drape it over each tree or shrub, securing the net to the trunks of the trees. Install the Netting prior to when Cicadas are forecasted to arive. Cable Ties from Industrial Netting are a suitable accessory to be used during installation to make the process simpler for you.
