Fairfax County will be largely spared from this month’s  emergence of a brood of red-eyed, 17-year cicadas.

Joan Martinez Allen, a  forester with the county’s Department of Public Works, says Fairfax County sits on  the border of Brood II, which is expected to emerge this month and inundate other  parts of Virginia.

Maps of the brood show that parts of Virginia south of  Fairfax and west of the I-95 corridor will see a greater infestation. Parts of  southern Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut are also home to Brood  II.

The D.C. region is most affected by Brood X, which emerged in 2004 and  won’t be back until 2017.
