Can light bugs be used for anything?

    If by ‘light bugs’ you mean lightning bugs or fireflies, then yes. Two chemicals in fireflies’ tails, luciferase and luciferin, can be injected into diseased cells and used to study many diseases including cancer and muscular dystrophy. The chemicals have also been put on spacecraft to search for life and used for food spoilage and bacterial contamination.
