How to get rid of Cicedas in your house?

I have a magiciceda in my bedroom in the basement. The thing loves to sing all night. It keeps me up. I was able to stop it from singing by turning on a box fan. That helps, but I still have the insect in my basement. I'd like to get rid of it.

I've tried diffusing peppermint and eucalyptus oils, but that hasn't seemed to help.

Thought?

Update:

The problem is that it's hiding behind a book shelf that's super loaded. Manually retrieving it is difficult.

    Not to worry, they have a short lifespan. You could always turn a cat loose in there. That would make short order of that bug.

    Pick it carefully up in something light and soft, toilet paper comes to mind, and put it outside. They don't bite or sting.
