I think I saw my first fireflies last night. Hubby looked up at the arched window in our family room and noticed 3 bright lights and didn't know what the heck they were. I rushed to the window in time to see a bright light crawling up my patio wall and then they were gone. It looked like a really bright LED light - I hadn't expected them to be so bright - very cool !

I see them from time to time. It almost goes in cycles. Such as: visible for months one year, then 3 years with no sighting, then it repeats.

We have been here for ten years and have never seen a one. My kids keep asking what they are and why they have never seen any. I loved them growing up in Ga.

I lived in Bellville for a year. They're all over the place there.

Oh, I've never seen one neither. Good to know that it's possible to spot them here, in Houston. Thanks for the report!

I miss fireflies. Once saw what looked like a huge ball of them in the Big Thicket many years ago. Neatest thing ever.

Default Still in Katy

I see them in Katy, but not as much this year because of the drought.
