Brood XIX Activity in Hartselle, AL

I was visiting my mother today when me and my 4 year old son were walking around the yard and discovered the holes, skins, and cicadas. My mom said she noticed several on their carport this morning. There are over a hundered holes and skins lying around still and a few creeping around the yard, while the woods behind the house are filled with callings.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the confirmation photos. As you may or may not know, there are four different species of 13 year periodical cicadas. You particular specimen could possibly be be one of two of those 4. It could either be M. tredecassini or M. tredecula. Its hard to confirm 100% without a view of its underside. Still though excellent photos and now you should be able to find Hartselle, AL on our distribution map and thanks.
