Might be an odd question, but does anyone know what adult lightning bugs eat?
I keep finding them hiding under my bell pepper plant leaves during the day... Just curious more than anything...
good to know! I saw one on my pumpkin plant the other day, and was wondering- but knew it was a lightning bug so I left it!rainbowgardener wrote:Like ants and many other insects, the adult lightening bug doesn't eat solid food, just mostly nectar. It's not eating your plants, just hiding.
Lightening bug larvae however eat all kinds of things including, get this, slugs!
