In 2011, periodical cicada
emergences were reported in 19 South Carolina counties.
Considering that oviposition site choice seems suboptimal in these examples, in which there is no offspring dispersal, our results with periodical cicadas
, in which nymphs do appear to disperse, seem even more plausible.
When periodical cicadas
emerge, they do so in enormous numbers--up to 1,500,000 individual insects per acre, weighing over one ton cumulatively.
Brood XIX, a 13-year brood of periodical cicadas
, has the largest distribution of the periodical cicada

Around May 20, Brood 10 of the periodical cicada
will emerge across the eastern two-thirds of the Commonwealth," said Secretary Wolff.
These periodical cicadas
live in eastern and central North America, where biologists and spring-wedding planners alike keep tabs on the 15 different cohorts, or broods.
All three periodical cicada
species, Magicicada septendecim, M.
Brood XIV of the periodical cicadas
emerged in nine counties in southern Indiana and 16 counties in southwestern Ohio during late May and June of 2008.

But they're also part of a band of researchers who're working hard to push periodical cicada
science to new heights and discover overlooked peculiarities of some of the continent's most in-your-face insects.

8[degrees]C suggested that there might be a meteorological predictor that would indicate when a periodical cicada
emergence would begin in a given year.
