Cicada Killers

Are You Dealing With Cicada Killers In Your NY, NJ or CT Property?


1-1 5/8″ and black with yellow markings. They have two wings. Cicada killers are often mistaken for yellow jackets. Cicadas are much larger and faster then yellow jackets.


They like to nest in the ground and make holes with small soil mounds outside them.

How do they affect me?

Cicada kills are very intimidating. When an infestation is found, there will be hundreds of them. It’s rare that a female cicada killer will sting.

What do I do?

Cicada killers are covered under our Home Pest Prevention plan. You can also eliminate all bare-spots on your yard to prevent them from returning in the future.
