More Immature Nymphs from Decatur, IL

This is the correct data for the first report of brood XIX. I found 5 immature nypmphs under logs. They look to be a bit over a half inch. Soil temps are around 68 but falling due to a week long cold front. Air temps were 80 on this day but now it is 63. Once again this is the correct data for the first report

Hi Jake,

Thanks again for the cool photos. I think that you will start to see full blown adults and calling probably at the very end of May and into June.

Thanks for the photo and the data point.
