Asked in Australia, Beetles, Seasons
How many weeks do fireflies stay around during the summer?
Fireflies will stay out during most of the summer time, as long as the hot, humid climate persists. It also depends on how many female fireflies lay their eggs at the beginning of summer, and how many they lay. On average, a female will lay about 100 eggs on the ground. It takes 10 days to 2 or 3 weeks for the larva to hatch and "grow up". So if they start hatching in June and the females keep laying eggs until August, you could very well still have fireflies around in September if it is still hot and humid.
