Description: Cicada exoskeleton and live cicada atop leaves. Cicadas (Cicadidae, Magicicada) are 13- and 17- year periodical cicadas of North America. These insects display a unique combination of long life cycles, periodicity, and mass emergences. Often called "locusts," but they are not locusts; locusts are "grasshopper-like" and belong to the order Orthoptera.
