Cicada Projected Timeline for PG #681517

Asked February 23, 2021, 9:20 AM EST

Is there a timeline for the appearance and eventual dissipation of the 2021 cicadas specific to PG county? When is the infestation likely to be at its highest? Thanks.

Prince George's County Maryland

Expert Response

We do not have specific information on your county. Areas that were developed or had soil re-graded in the past 17 years, or which have few mature trees, may not see many cicadas locally. They can fly but do not go far. 

Adult periodical cicadas live between 2 and 6 weeks after they emerge from the ground. Adults will begin emerging in mid-May and will last through mid-June.

Take a look at our webpage https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/cicadasand the link to Cicada Mania Brood X for more information. https://www.cicadamania.com/
