Where do lightning bugs go during the day? I live in the country, and one of my (many) hobbies is gardening, so I’m familiar with the great outdoors. We have a multitude of lightning bugs, but they seem to materialize at dusk. I can easily identify them (didn’t everybody catch them and jar them when we were kids?) so I know what I’m looking for. I never see them in the daytime. They aren’t crawling around on my plants or in the grass. They aren’t buzzing my head. They aren’t in the spiderwebs or the light fixtures. Are they underground? Another planet? Another dimension? Am I just making this up?
C’mon insect folks, help me out here.
