What kills cicadas?
I'm pretty sure you can kill a cicada with a hammer or a blow torch, but the most common way to kill a cicada is with a stick or your shoe.
Attack against internal organs and disruption of life-sustaining processes are the ways that systemic kills aphids and cicadas. A systemic insecticide has the same effect regardless of the target pest. No insect survives systemic insecticide treatment schedules unless the arthropod in question has developed insecticide resistance or pesticide immunity to laboratory-made and nature-derived products that kill.
The advantage to the environment is that lots of animals that consume cicadas get a lot to eat. The advantage to the cicadas is that there are a lot of potential mates with corresponding genetic diversity. Some plants may not survive a large infestation of cicadas but those individual plants that survive will contribute genetic material to future generations.
Food poisoning is the way in which systemic insecticide kills aphids and cicadas. Specifically, systematic insecticides can be applied as grains or a spray. The granular form is sprinkled and then watered to make the control available for intake by the plant, especially through the roots. The spray form is used to treat plant parts, especially leaves. Aphids prey upon a plant's life-giving phloem and xylem sap whereas cicadas feed upon the moisture in budding…
