Join Dr. Mike Raupp, entomology expert from University of Maryland aka, The Bug Guy, to learn about the 2021 Cicada brood. For seventeen years they have been feeding on plant roots underground. In the spring of 2021 from Georgia to New York and as far west as Illinois trillions of Brood X periodical cicadas will emerge from the earth. In some locations densities will reach 1.5 million per acre. We will explore the natural history, evolution, ecology, and behavior of the seven indigenous species of periodical cicadas. We will learn their stange strategies for survival, battles with predators and parasites, and how they may affect our plants and our lives. Join us to learn about one of the most unique and fascinating creatures on the planet.
