I just came back from a walk with the dogs and in the pet relief area I noticed lots of June bugs zooming around and thought for a while that they were lightning bugs with their lights out or perhaps unable to compete with the streetlights. Nope.
There were no lightning bugs anywhere to be seen. They just do not use that area. They can’t compete I guess. How much wildlife do we lose, displace, starve out or kill, thoughtlessly?
