View Full Version : Secata?

Can someone please provide the correct spelling of the insect secata? It's a huge looking fly that I believe has built cocoons on my leyland cypress and almost killed it. I saw one at the bottom of the trunk. The tree must have 50 cocoons on it. I need to know what to do about them without having to call Terminix.

Ok I found the correct spelling: Cicada. Now how do I get rid of them.

The strongest treatment is a combination of BIFEN
and SPREADER STICKER. The Bifen will both kill
and repel cicadas. Its odorless, won't hurt any
plant and will provide 2-4 weeks of residual...c

It turns out the cocoons are bag worms. Problem solved.
