Cicada Sighting in Suffolk, VA


My husband used home defense to spray it and kill it. So the coloring looks different now. When it first hit the house and was stunned from impact, it's head had a fuzzy look to it that looked grey and black, but after the home defense that fuzz was gone. Here are pictures. I couldn't get clearer ones but hope this helps. After looking at the site and hearing the noise video on there, my yard sounds just like that. Very loud. My house has woods behind it between us and the highway.

Hi Tanya

Thanks for the photos. I can't be 100% sure but I think that is T. auletes. Is there any way I can persuade you to put it in a box and send it to me? I can reimburse you postage.

Let me know.
