What Cincinnati neighborhoods might see the most cicadas

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Brood X cicadas are coming to Greater Cincinnati. 

However, not all parts of the city are created equal when it comes to periodical cicada density. 

Gene Kritsky, a leading cicada expert and entomologist at Mount St. Joseph University, said some areas could have more than 200 cicadas per square yard. 

“Periodical cicadas survive by coming out in massive numbers,” Kritsky said. “We’re talking about 350 per square yard in parts of Delhi.”

That number came from one cemetery in Delhi Township, under one tree. Add up all the trees in a cemetery and you could have thousands of cicadas.
