CroppMetcalfe marketing supervisor Eric Tessel said the Fairfax-based contractor, which includes a pest-control division, does not treat cicadas because they exit from the ground and lay eggs high up in the trees where they cannot be reached with a spray.
"Rodents tend to eat cicadas because they're so much protein. Later on in the year, you'll see more and bigger rodents," Mr. Tessel said. "When rodent season comes around, we expect it to be busier because of all the cicadas that have come out."
