It does seem way too early--I too think about (around) Fourth of July for them to start (a little earlier usually). I thought I saw one on a hazelnut twig--I've not seen them lighting up yet though. Were yours flashing their lights?

My guess is they could be out now, but don't start flashing until mating season.
