Cicadas with Dr. Gene Kritsky
February 23rd, 2021 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm EST
The Return of the Periodical Cicada Brood X
The periodical cicada Brood X was first recorded in 1715 and has been returning once every 17 years since. It will next appear in May to June 2021 right here in Cincinnati. This presentation will explore what to expect with the return of Brood X, how Brood X’s emergences have contributed to our understanding of cicada biology, and how you can help map out the emergence.
