Cicadas with Dr. Gene Kritsky
February 23rd, 2020 at 7pm
The Return of the Periodical Cicada Brood X
The periodical cicada Brood X was first recorded in 1715 and has been returning once every 17 years since. It will next appear in May to June 2021 right here in Cincinnati. This presentation will explore what to expect with the return of Brood X, how Brood X’s emergences have contributed to our understanding of cicada biology, and how you can help map out the emergence.

He received his BA in Biology at Indiana University in 1974 and his MS and PhD in Entomology from the University of Illinois in 1976 and 1977 respectively.
