What Are Cicadas?
Cicadas are large, flying insects (2.5 to 3 inches long) that emerge from the ground by the tens of thousands each summer. They famously have a 13- to 17-year life cycle, although some species mature in 2-5 years. It’s the males that get the most attention, making a loud, distinctive buzz as a mating call.
Female cicadas and cicada larvae, however, are the real threat to your garden. Females lay their eggs inside the branches of trees and shrubs. Once they hatch, larvae burrow into the ground where they feed on plant roots. Cicada control focuses on these vulnerable plants, killing the bugs and eggs already present and protecting them from being targeted by females in the future.
Get Rid Of Your Cicada Infestation
Cicadas are harmless to humans, apart from giving you a hard jab when one tries to feed on you. But there are still plenty of reasons why getting rid of cicadas is a good idea. Here are four of them:
- They make a lot of noise.
- They harm young trees and shrubs.
- The larvae stunt the growth of plants.
- Their size and number are annoying to most, scary to others.
