Fireflies can be captured easily by hand as they fly just before dark, or a butterfly net may be used. The firefly must be caught while flying and glowing in the evening or night. The wings and body of the insect are almost black and only the tip of the body is yellow. The brown beetles which swarm in the daytime on lawns and about shrubbery, look similar to the firefly but cannot be used. Fireflies dot not come out during the day, only after sunset.
