Fact of the Day: Glowing Beetles

Fireflies are not true flies, they actually belong to the beetle family of insects. Thanks to Amanda and her Firefly post for giving me this fact!

WOW, very interesting. We don't have them here in NC, but my kids love to catch them in PA when we go to visit my parents.

Summer and catching fireflies go hand in hand with us. Now that you have educated me, I'll have to use "light bugs" as a more correct term.
