Cicadas in New York

17-year and annual cicadas live in New York. The periodical cicadas emerge early to mid-May when the soil temperature reaches 64oC. They emerge for 3-4 weeks and die in about a month. Broods II, V, VII, X, and XIV visit the state of which brood X is the biggest brood of the nation. The annuals come out in late summer. Their songs can exceed 100 decibels, the same sound level as a jackhammer.
