    If you live in an area where 13-year cicadas are expected, you can help determine their range. There is an online database at http://www.magicicada.org/report/report.php where you can report sightings.

    If you don’t know if cicadas are expected in your area, you can check the maps at http://www.magicicada.org/about/brood_pages/broodXIX.php .

    A map with the 500 most recent reported sightings is at http://www.magicicada.org/databases/magicicada/map.html .

    They aren't found in my region..... However, we have some other kind of Cicada here; I heard them on a warmish day last week. Love the sound they make.

    Good listening!

    There were 13-year cicada reported near me in past emergences and we have a lot of the annual or dog day cicadas, so I was hopeful. There were again reports within 50 miles of me, but I didn’t see or hear any.
