In Your Backyard: Periodical Cicadas is the 2016 revision of the award winning In Ohio’s Backyard: Periodical Cicadas. This e-book now includes detailed information about past emergences for the entire eastern United States, and include details of new discoveries about periodical cicadas.

Periodical Cicadas: the Plague and the Puzzle covers the history of our understanding of these “bugs of history.” When cicadas were first observed they were thought to predict a plague, but that notion gave way to the puzzle how these insects with their long life cycles evolved. Extensively referenced, this book is the ideal introduction to these insects for those readers wanting more details.
