17 Year Cicada: 17 Year Cicada Life Cycle - Either a 13-year-old cicada or a 17-year-old cicada is without any parallel in the nature.
Within 10 days, the female cicadas will mate and deposit 400-600 eggs on the branches of 80 (!) different species of trees & woody shrubs. However, no eggs are laid in coniferous trees. Interestingly, but cicadas deposit them in self-made wood pockets!
