I found some relevant information here: (Please read these and other links for more information on cicada's).
I also found a recent local news report which states that over the next couple of months, these "Brood 14" cicada's will be emerging from the ground. Not since the early '90's have we seen them here, as they come in 17-year cycles. *Note, I believe this particular news report meant to say Brood ll.
So far, I've only seen 1. Time will tell if they're going to come in droves or if we're just going to get a few early stragglers!
Have you seen any cicadas lately?
