Just take a flashlight with you anddo not depend on lightning bugs tofind your way. Wal-Mart can give youa good deal.
I've only seen them once, when we visited Kentucky. They are delighful
Mimi,I didn't know that they didn't have them out on the West Coast!
We're poorer for not having lightnin' bugs in the West, but we don't have redbugs either. (I think they are called "chiggers" in some parts of the country.) Growing up in Alabama, I remember how you could tell a kid was "eat up" with redbugs. He/she had dots of nail polish on their legs to smother the itchy critters that had burrowed under the skin.dan
The young daughter of a classmate at the seminary decades ago called them "flash bees". I've always appreciated that name. Entomologically incorrect, I'm sure, but the bugs are more flash than lightning bolt.
