This Spring, Millions Of Cicadas Are Set To Emerge In West Virginia After 17 Years Underground

Coming soon to a county near you: millions and millions of cicadas. That’s right, if you thought last year’s Brood IX cicadas were bad, wait until you hear about the Brood X cicadas set to emerge this year!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

If you’re fascinated by cicadas (or even if you’re not), you may also be interested in learning about a brand new disease discovered in West Virginia last year that’s affecting their population – a bizarre zombie fungus with a mind of its own.
