I don't think FL has lighting bugs. I remember thinking they were great when we would visit my grandparents in OH.

How many of you enjoy them? That is, those of you who are fortunate to have then in your geographical area.

I remember spending hours as a child chasing them and putting them in old mayonnaise jars. Daddy would poke holes in the top of the jar with a hammer and nail and I would be off and, literally, running. It's a great memory.

Fortunately, where Buck and I live we have lots of vegetation and the "bug" population is huge. It's the Fourth of July every evening in the summer.

I think I need to go now and find a mayonnaise jar.
Wow, that brings back memories for me too Katie. I haven't seen a lightening bug up this way for a long time. When I was a kid we did the same as you, collect them in jar with holes poked in the top, and then eventually released them. I sure do miss those buggers
