If cicadas nest in the ground, is there a way to prevent them from emerging after their hibernation period? For example, somehow turning the soil over or something to reduce the number of cicadas from coming back?
Are cicadas originally from this area? Do they exist in any other part of the country or the world?
Cicadas nymphs nest 6 -18 inches below the ground. Disturbing the soil would not be a very effective method of suppressing their population. The most effective method to reduce the impact of cicadas is to cover newly planted trees with fine netting.
The 17 year Cicada are native to this area. Other species of cicada can be found in other countries.
