Your Garden Friends: Fireflies!

Fireflies blog post
Fireflies are not only fun to watch flash at nighttime, but are great to have in your garden as they are predators to many pests that may plague your garden. They like to feed on other insect larvae, snails, and slugs.
 

How to Attract or Encourage:

  • First off, make sure that you do not use any pesticides in your garden! This can harm your beneficials as well as your pests.
  • Fireflies typically like to be out in open areas away from populated areas and street lights.
  • Fireflies lay their eggs in water and can be attracted by providing a source for them to lay eggs.
