If you mean lightning bugs (fireflies) then the answer is not for very long. However, most of their lives are spent in the larva stage (about 4-7 months). But once they emerge from this stage and become adult fireflies, their life span is about two weeks long. They live just long enough to find a mate (with their flashing of luminescence), mate with them, lay eggs, and then die soon after that.
Fireflies, or lightning bugs, only live for about 2 months. They are actually a type of beetle and are related to glowworms. Fireflies mix oxygen with luciferin to create a glow under their abdomens. This is both a mating signal and a defense mechanism.
