The Cicadas Are Coming!

As we usher in 2024 we also will face a rare, synchronized cicada outbreak not seen since 1803! Two broods will emerge in late April—the 13-year brood and the 17-year brood. This once-in-a-lifetime event will see cicadas in Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, Louisiana, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. This alignment of the two broods happens only once every 221 years.

Cicadas are known to emit a high-pitched buzz that can reach up to 100 decibels. Although they are harmless to humans, they will be noisy and they can destroy your trees and shrubs. Female cicadas cut slits in small branches of trees so they can lay their eggs. This causes the branch to die. A single female produces up to 600 eggs. Their life cycle typically lasts about six weeks, so protecting your trees from these broods will be essential.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests covering trees in mesh or netting with ¼” holes. Industrial Netting has just the material you need. It is a disposable netting that is wrapped completely around the tree or shrub and tied off with zip ties to keep insects from finding an entry path.

Find more details and watch a video here about how our netting can help protect your trees.

FiltXPO is Coming Up Soon

Industrial Netting will be exhibiting at FiltXPO at Navy Pier in Chicago, October 10–12. FiltXPO is North America’s only exhibition and conference dedicated exclusively to filtration and separation. Industrial Netting produces extruded plastic filtration net, mesh screens, and cores in a wide variety of configurations and pore sizes. Our filtration netting is suitable for most any air, liquid, or gas separation and filtration application. Our products are easily fabricated and converted to customized components expediently and economically with our slitting and rewinding or sheeting and die-cutting services. Plastic mesh offers strong yet lightweight parts that have excellent resistance to chemicals and corrosion, are nonconductive, and have good response to temperature changes.

Plastic netting, mesh, screens, and rigid mesh tubes are used in filter cartridges for automotive, HVAC, water purification, hydraulic filtration, fuel filtration, beverage filtration, medical filtration, and food processing applications.

The role of plastic netting in the filtration industry is not singular. The wide variety of filtration and separation systems and media results in a wide range of uses and functions for plastic netting. The major functions of plastic netting in filtration can broadly be categorized as 1) Facilitating the flow of fluids, 2) Supporting, 3) Protecting, 4) Reinforcing, and 5) Filtering. Our products provide multiple solutions to all of these functions, so stop by Booth #604 to see how Industrial Netting can provide a solution to your filtration needs.

The Cicadas have Arrived!

Get Prepared for the largest Cicada Outbreak in 17 Years!

After 17 years of living underground, the Brood X Cicadas are now emerging in 15 states! Be ready to hear bugs singing for 5 to 6 weeks in the states of Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington D.C.

It is so important for your trees and shrubs to be protected throughout the emergence. Once the Cicadas emerge they are going to head straight for high ground and away from predators. Unfortunately, this high ground is your trees! Once they reach the trees, male and female Cicadas will mate. After mating, the trillions of female Cicadas move to the smaller branches of trees and lay their eggs within them causing significant damage. Once this process is over the Cicadas fall from the trees and weeks later the baby cicadas hatch and burrow back under the ground for another 17 years. What a process!

This article from the Star Tribune, “Nature at its craziest: Trillions of cicadas about to emerge” outlines what to expect during the largest emergence in 17 years.

How Industrial Netting Can Help

If you are amongst the people who live in the states of emergence don’t be afraid – it is not too late to get your Cicada Control Netting from Industrial Netting to protect your trees! Our Netting ships after 24 hours and can be ordered online for your convenience. You can contact us with any questions.

How to Protect Trees and Shrubs During the 17-Year Cicada Outbreak this Spring

This spring you can expect the largest Cicada Outbreak in 17 years throughout the months of May through June. This emergence of Brood X, 17-year cicadas leaves young trees vulnerable to damage. Once the ground level reaches 64 degrees F, the Cicadas will emerge searching for trees and shrubs to latch onto and lay their eggs beneath the bark of twigs and branches. The egg laying process has the potential to cause significant damage to young trees to the point that they can die.

Watch this video for installation instructions and to learn how Cicada Control Netting from Industrial Netting can protect your property during the largest outbreak in 17-years.
