Do you remember catching fireflies as a kid? They used to be all over in my yard in Iowa, but it is very hard to find them now...unfortunately due to pesticides and much more that has depleted them in the environment....

Fireflies are a great educational tool and can provide a science lesson to children and adults right in their very own backyard or in a park nearby. He says, "If you have a penlight, you can sometimes lure a male big dipper by responding to his flash within the two seconds that he is hovering near you. Another way one can learn about fireflies is to catch them and observe their flash patterns in a jar. #FireFly #education .
Catching lightening bugs out in the yard at night. (I am beyond ready for Summer so we can do this again. This winter is awful!)
Lightning bugs or fireflies are not flies and neither are they bugs, but they are beetles that can produce lights. Lightning bugs can light up during all stages of their lives, including larvae and pupae. In some species of lightning bugs, the eggs glow as well!
