17 Year Cicada: Cicadas 17 Year - There exist 6 species of periodical cicadas: with a 17-year cycle (3) and with a 13-year cycle (3). But all those three species of each life-cycle group differ in size, color, and sound. The 17-year-old cicadas tend to locate in the North, while the 13-year-old ones - in the South. Nevertheless, both types may emerge in the same forest.
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!
