Cicada Life Cycle: Cicada Bug Pictures - Immature periodical cicadas or nymphs develop underground, sucking root plant juices. Within 13 (a 13-year-old cicada) or 17 years (a 17-year-old cicada) in the soil, the mature nymphs emerge and climb right onto some vertical surface or nearby vegetation. After that they molt into winged adults, leaving their shed outer skins (exoskeletons) attached to twigs or tree trunks.
Cicada nymphs suck the juices of various tree species: oak, ash, cypress, willow, and maple.
