Cicadas are mostly harmless, but arborists warn that small trees and shrubs could be damaged as female cicadas lay their eggs.
The loud hissing of the Brood II cicada will soon be heard along the East Coast, from New York to Georgia. The sound is the mating call of the species.
Later in the spring, this brood of periodical cicadas —- which surfaces every 17 years -— will swarm the East Coast from North Carolina to New York and farther north.
