People have been recording periodical cicada emergences for nearly four centuries. These maps have been critical in verifying the cicadas’ long life cycles and the relationships of the broods to each other.
Help us map the 2019 emergence with Cicada Safari! Your submitted photos will be used to determine the range of Brood VIII in Eastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and Northern West Virginia.

Informative & Unique App
Signed in through my Facebook and had no issues with creating an account ! Super easy to navigate, gives lots of information on the types of cicadas you’ll be seeing and if they’re been spotted in surrounding areas. You can even add pictures and videos of the ones you’ve spotted to see how they compare in different cities. Where I live we don’t get them often so it’s neat to see them being tracked and see where they pop up. Will be interesting to see them once they have their large emergence.
Technology Is amazing!
I loved going cicada hunting when I was little with my dad! So many happy memories. This is so nostalgic and makes it so much easier. I love when technology helps get kids outside more and this will be a really fun experience for my nieces and nephews!

Fails to create account. Can’t log in because password fills and keyboards keep popping up and hiding fields. No support address and link here just goes to university home page. Do not want to use Facebook or Google logins. :(
