About Fireflies : Fireflies belong to the family of beetles, and not flies as they are commonly mistaken for. These nocturnal winged beetles use bioluminescence, a chemical reaction when oxygen combines with luciferin, which is present in the lower abdomen of the insect to produce light. All fireflies glow as larvae. Bioluminescence serves a different function in the larvae than in adults. It appears to be a warning signal to predators, for, the larvae contains chemicals that are either distasteful or toxic.
The adult male beetles use light to primarily attract their mates. The interested female flashes back from her lower perch and the male flits overhead. What a romantic way of courting! The first few showers of monsoon is the best time to witness the fireflies since this is the time best fit for fireflies to start darting around. Fireflies cannot tolerate heavy raindrops and die. So, make sure you get to witness these lightning bugs with us.
