Possible First Emergence Holes Found

Cicada emergence holes

While visiting Southwell Field in North Chelmsford, MA.I found signs of many emergence holes today. I am hearing T. canicularis on a daily basis. Southwell Field is a softball field located off of Vinyl Square in North Chelsmford. However, I am still unsuccessful in finding any signs of exuvia. Cicada emergence holes average between 3/8 and 1/2 inch in diameter and they are almost perfectly round. These holes seem to fit that criteria nicely. If you spot a hole with these dimensions, chances are it's a Cicada emergence hole.
