Does anyone still see lightening bugs anymore?

If so, where do you live?

I live in GA, and we see them pretty much all summer.

My daughters love catching them. About 2 years ago, they had a particularly productive fire fly hunt. When they opened up the Tupperware to release them, one of the flies had been injured and could not fly away. While the fire fly was crawling across the patio, a toad hopped out of the shrubbery and ate the fly. As the toad hopped back into the shrubbery we could see the glow of the fire fly through the toad’s throat.

My wife and I went camping here in Wisconsin a few weeks ago and they were out every night.

I live in the Poconos and we have millions of them.

We've got 'em here in Indiana. I remember playing outside as late as I could possibly swing it without getting into trouble.. probably why kids see the bugs more than adults do. I often used the bugs as an excuse to not go inside. LOL Ewww.. i'm reminded of what we girls used to do.. we'd squish them and put the glow-goo on our fingersnails so they'd glow in the dark... so gross.

I'm in Maine, and I see them in the woods out back of my house, but they are not as prevelant as they were when I was a kid.

We see them pretty much all summer in rural Cow Hampshire too. Sometimes, late at night, we'll look down from an upstairs window and there will be thousands of them all swarming about 6 inches off the grass. It's a flat out light show - but absolutly silent!
