The bug people of Orkin are putting on a show to commemorate the historic emergence of a double brood of cicadas.

On June 8, the brand will host a seven-act symphony of sorts, featuring live performances of songs that harmonize with the singing and rhythm of trillions of cicadas.

The Orkinstra will be held in Springfield, Illinois at 6 p.m., the prime location and time for cicada listening. There’s a even a limited-edition t-shirt that will definitely be boutique gold in a few years.


Orkin is a name you know but never want to need. This effort is an artful way to establish the brand as not only a serious authority in the bug space, but also an appreciator of bugs. That’s pretty cool.
