Are Fireflies Flies, Bugs, or Beetles?

Fireflies are not really flies. Some people call them lightning bugs, but they are not bugs either. Fireflies are actually beetles.

The firefly is a flat, egg-shaped beetle 1/4 to 3/4 inches (5 to 20 millimeters) long. Its color is mostly brown or black. The firefly would be a rather ordinary beetle, except for one thing. At night, it can “light up.” You probably have seen fireflies whizzing around and flashing their lights on warm summer nights.

Some firefly larvae can glow, too. This is why people call them glowworms. Of course, they are not worms at all.

How Do Fireflies Make That “Cool” Light?

The firefly’s light is cool in more ways than one. Unlike natural and human-made light, it gives off no heat. The firefly’s light is produced by a complicated set of chemical reactions that take place in its abdomen. This complex process is called bioluminescence (by oh loo muh nehs uhns).

There are three layers to the organ that produces the firefly’s light. The innermost layer acts as a reflector. The middle layer contains the light cells. The outermost layer is clear and can be seen through.

Fireflies can control the light they produce. They send out light in a pattern of flashes. Scientists believe that fireflies do this by regulating the amount of oxygen they take into their bodies. Oxygen is the fuel that helps create the light.

What Do All Those Flashes Mean?

The male firefly flashes its light for a very important purpose. It wants to find a mate. When it gets dark, the male firefly flies through the night. It flashes its light like a signal. Each kind of firefly has its own signal.

The female firefly has short wings and often can’t fly. It perches itself on a bush or a rock and waits. When a male passes by with a signal the female recognizes, the female flashes back the same signal. The male lands and touches the female’s antennae. This is how fireflies smell each other. If the female smells right to him, the two fireflies will mate. Later the female lays her eggs.

Fireflies belong to the families Elateridae and Lampyridae of the beetle order, Coleoptera.

    This is indeed an exquisite absolutely beautiful image and what great information, I thought they were flies, I too adored them as a child, they were magical indeed, every child loves to watch and try to catch, probably we hoped we were catch the magic of the warm summer evening!
