What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Mating bugs?
May 3, 2010
Sorry for the lack of knowledge. I’m not exactly sure what kind of bugs these are! I thought they were lightning bugs, but I’m not sure.
Anyway, I thought you might like these mating buggies, and hopefully you could shed some light as to what these cuties are!

Hi Terra,
We agree with you that these are Fireflies, more specifically Diurnal Fireflies, and most probably Ellychnia currusca, the Winter Firefly, which we identified on Bugguide.
