Question:
My husband and I live in New Hampshire. We were wondering where lightning bugs go in the winter especially since our winters are sooo cold. And what about June bugs?


Replies:
Lightning bugs overwinter as larvae buried in the soil. June bugs as adults in underground burrows.

J. Elliott


The larval forms subsist in the ground I believe.
