How many Lightning Bugs are born at once?
There are different types of Lightning bugs. Some females will lay hundreds of eggs and others will lay only about 40. How many hatch out as larva depends on how many eggs were deposited and if they survive predators. There are 4 stages to their growth into an adult lightning bug. They start as an egg, then hatch into larva, pupa and then a lightning bug.
