Emergence Holes in Engelwood, CO

I have hundreds of holes in my yard that I believe are emergence holes. It has been very warm this past month--can they be here this early?

Hi Maria,

Well, it does seem to be a bit early for these to be cicada emergence holes. I do know that Colorado has several genera of cicadas that emerge early. Those are Platypedia or Okanagana. It could be possible that these may be holes from one of those species but I would also expect some evidence of exuvia (cast-off nymphal skins) to be scattered about.

Keep me posted if you learn more.
