Periodical Cicada Survey - Kingwood Twsp. NJ

Today (May 31 2021 at 4:30 PM) I ran a quick survey of Magicicada species present in my backyard in Kingwood Township NJ, where I simply wandered around and tallied every cicada I caught.

I caught 100 cicadas in about 20 minutes:

M. cassinii - 88
M. septendecim - 9
M. septendecula - 3

I think there were a greater percentage of M. septendecim present than the ones I tallied. They tended to roost higher in vegetation.

Way fun! I can almost hear the cicada noise from this journal entry. ;)
