Insect experts are reassuring local homeowners that their trees will not be permanently harmed by this year’s cicada invasion.
The concern comes from a process called ‘"flagging," where female cicadas lay eggs in the tips of tree branches.
Rex Bastian, technical adviser for the Davey Tree Expert Company, says while that leaves brown patches and dead leaves, the trees will heal.
