Cicadas costing lawn professionals time and money

Cicadas costing lawn professionals time and money

Not only have the periodical Brood X cicadas cost him time, but they have also cost him money. He says both areas seem to have more trees and taller grass. “I was on going through a privacy gate, and one hit me in the face, and I went like this, which turns the wheel that way, and I nailed through the privacy gate, and I broke it,” Patterson said. “Cost me a whole day of pay to fix it.”

He has a crew of five people. Every few seconds, Patterson says he is swatting one away.

Patterson says they all feel like the cicadas slow them down especially in Price Hill. Delhi is another area he finds more cicadas than usual. The cicadas have slowed down his business so much he says it takes three times as long to finish cutting a lawn.

“I’ll have other people working for me, so I’ll be sitting in an office laughing at them,” Patterson said. See a spelling or grammar error in our story?

“Cut down a tree the other day, and when I cut one branch off of it, they just went crazy,” Patterson remembered. “You would not believe how many was in there.” Patterson does more than mowing; he also removes trees.
