I was thinking the very same thing the last few years. I presented the question to many people here in the midwest and the common answer was:
"Oh yeah! Didn't even notice they were gone --but you're right. Where are they? Now that you mention it, I haven't seen one in a long time."
Or something to that effect. It is a puzzle!
Up until the Millennium, or so, you saw them almost every night in the summer. But I'd say, since, well around 9/11 or so they've been disappearing
each year little by little. No, I'm not connecting, or trying to connect, 9/11 with the disappearance of lightning bugs! Just using a well-known
date as a base level for reflection.
But yeah, they have disappeared drastically. Maybe it has something to do with chemtrails, who knows. Their disappearance matches up well with the
increase with the chemtrails appearances from 2002 onward. So, maybe.
I'd like to know what is happening to them though.
