Brood XIV Nymph Dig - June 10 & 12, 2016

Brood XIV Nymph Dig

Upton, New York
June 10 & 12, 2016

Brood XIV last emerged on Long Island in May 2008. These nymphs of Magicicada septendecim are in various stages of development. They go through 5 Instars before emerging again. They spend most of their lives underground living on the xylem from tree roots in a cell they create for themselves. This is one of the larger Broods on Long Island and will emerge again in the Spring of 2025.
