The cicadas with the red eyes are periodical cicadas, the same ones that will be emerging in large numbers this year in Maryland and some other areas. It is unlikely we’ll see them on Long Island.  These cicadas have a 17-year life cycle and emerge around late May to early June.    COURTESY DANIEL OWEN  GILREIN

The cicada with blue-green wing veins is an annual or ‘dog-day’ cicada. These have a much shorter life cycle  and emerge later around mid-summer. Most people have heard the buzzing call of the males from high in the trees. They are here on Long Island every year.    COURTESY DANIEL OWEN   GILREIN
