Cicadas in Nebraska

The last week of May to mid-June sees the emergence of the periodical cicadas of Nebraska. Only brood IV of the 17-year periodical cicadas can be seen here. No 13-year periodicals occur in the state. But, annual cicadas make their appearance every year in late summer. They have loud, overwhelming, buzzing songs that can sometimes seem deafening.
