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?
Lightning bugs overwinter as larvae buried in the soil. June bugs as adults in underground burrows.
The larval forms subsist in the ground I believe.
