2024 DOUBLE BROOD Cicada Emergence Comfort Colors T-Shirt

2024 DOUBLE BROOD Cicada Emergence Comfort Colors T-Shirt

2024 will see two separate batches of periodical cicadas emerge en masse, spread across much of the eastern half of the U.S. These insects crawl out of the ground once every 13 or 17 years for a rush of mating and egg-laying until all the adults die, and the next generation is tucked underground until their own teenage years. It’s an unusual but ancient lifecycle that has become part of the fabric of Eastern U.S. forests. And it will be on full display this spring, with both a 13-year brood and a 17-year brood emerging across adjoining territories—a particularly rare occurrence.

While the brood emergence will be most noticeable in Illinois, there are instances of emergency seen and heard all across areas of the United States, to the east of the Mississippi River. 

Mark this rare and significant emergence with your very own 2024 BROOD EMERGENCE T-Shirt, made with the popular and super comfy Comfort Colors 1717. 

This design is available in the colors listed -- but special requests are also welcome. Please allow up to 14 days for delivery!
