Living in SC I remember plenty in the fields and trees growing along the pastures. Why so few any answers or comments.

Sorry, but do to the energy situation the Department of Energy has asked that all lightning bugs turn off their lights (grin).

I guess they are all here in East Central Okla.We have lots of them already. I would bet even more later in the summer.

I saw one a couple of nights ago - I expect he's kinda lonely - we usually don't see them till June or July. I used to live in Florence, SC - don't remember seeing lightning bugs there since I was a kid about 50 years ago. I think they all moved to western NC - since we moved here we've have hundreds of them in the Poplar trees on the farm. Makes a nice light show at night.

I've seen a few this year. Seems like less each year for a while now. I guess the dang skeeters are eating 'em!

they should be showing up soon. gettin' hot enough for 'em, especially in east texas. used to like to catch them in a jar when i was a kid. looked like blinking christmas lights. maybe all them pesticides/insecticides is causing them to die off or move on.
