When do lightning bugs come out?
Dusk is when lightning bugs make themselves most visible. Specifically, lightning bugs can be seen poised in the grass or on building and tree parts. But they do not light up until dusk. They may make themselves visible from early evening into 1-2 hours before dawn, from late spring into early fall, depending upon environment and weather.
