What a great pollinator plant, and yes fireflies can be good pollinators!! There are around 2,000 different species of fireflies around the world. Firefly larva will eat soft-bodied insects, while a majority of adult fireflies will eat pollen and nectar but some won't eat at all! Fireflies aren't actually a type of fly, but a type of beetle! What are some characteristics of beetles that make them good pollinators? Think about how they travel, what they eat, and where you are most likely to see a beetle!
