Why do lightning bugs flash? Are Lightning Bugs and Fireflies the same insect? As evening turns to night, flashes are signals to each other and not all flashes mean the same thing. Fireflies are nature’s micro-lanterns. They are not flies, but are members of a particular family of the Beetle Order. The Firefly Family is technically known as the Lampyridae.
