Lightning Bugs in Europe?

Jump to last reply

I was talking to a friend from England today, and she said she didn't remember having lightning bugs (aka fireflies) in England as she was growing up. We don't have them in the Pacific Northwest either (whah!).

This observation led us to wonder where lightning bugs live and why. We had them in the midwest, south and east, as I was growing up, and they used to delight children. The trade-off is, we have few truly annoying pests here. For example, mosquitos are in short supply, compared to back east. We think it must be related to humidity.

I believe this is the very time of year the fireflies are lighting the evening skies in the east. How 'bout it Europe? Lightning bugs? Yes or no?
