This Firefly Phenomenon In Wisconsin Will Enchant You In The Best Way Possible

Every summer, the yards and fields of Wisconsin light up with fireflies. These little beetles come out in the warm weather to attract mates with their bioluminescence. There are more than 2,000 species of firefly and each one has a slightly different light and pattern they use to attract mates.

Last year was one of the best years ever in Wisconsin for viewing these little lightning bugs and the conditions this spring mean we’re likely to see a similar burst of brilliantly lit yards this summer as well.

The Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is located at 1111 E Brown Deer Rd., Bayside, WI 53217. For more information check out their website or their Facebook page. This is the event listing for the first Citizen Scientist Firefly Count.
