Periodical cicadas are one of nature’s wonders-millions of insects singing, flying, and then gone before you know it.
In 2017, Periodical Cicada Brood VI will emerge in the mountains of North Carolina and in isolated spots in northeast Georgia and northwest South Carolina. Brood VI may also emerge in other places. This site is designed to be a source of information about periodical cicadas in general and about the specific details of Brood VI. This site is also part of a crowdsourcing effort to collect information about periodical cicada sightings from the public.
