Want to keep track of Brood X? New app tracks cicada sightings

Ohio

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Want to keep track of cicada sightings throughout Ohio? Of course there’s an app for that.

The app is called Cicada Safari and its asking its users to share photos of the noisy insects.

How does it work? Created by Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, the app verifies the photos and posts the location to a live map showing other sightings across the eastern United States.

You can find the app on the Apple Store or on Google Play.
