The Life Cycle Of A Cicada

The Cicada is the insect that loves to stay in a pack of over 100 other cicadas. The Garden Guy is going to tell you about the life cycle of the cicada. Every 7 years cicadas hatch underground and make a cocoon on the surface of the tree bark. Then they grow up into a full adult out of the cocoon in about 3 to 4 days then they will feed on your sap of the tree for the remainder of the summer and making high pitch mating calls to the females. Then whenever the time comes the males will die and female cicadas will go back underground to lay their eggs and the female cicadas will die.
