Purdue workshop for 13 and 17 year olds on cicadas offered

Ferdinand- Purdue Extension and Ferdinand Library will host a workshop for homeowners and the general public on the upcoming joint emergence of the 13-year-old and 17-year-old cicada in the Midwest.

The workshop will take place on May 14, 2024 starting at 6:30 p.m. EST at the Ferdinand Library, 112 East 16th Street, Ferdinand, IN.

Participants will learn about the emerging periodical cicadas “Brood XIII” and “Brood XIX,” their life cycles, potential damage to trees and landscaping, their effects on pets, and even cicada recipes (“taste of shrimp, but with subtle notes of peanut or asparagus boiled”).

The event is open to the public and participation is free.
