Default Firefly Population in Alton Village

I'm on Sealey Crescent and I've had some fireflies in my backyard for the past 2 years. I've also seen them in my yard during the day. I'd like to ask Alton Village residents to help them to continue to exist and perhaps thrive:-

1) Draw your blinds at night so that it remains dark outside. Lights can interfere with fireflies mating process.

2) Do not over mow your lawn.

3) Do not use pesticide, herbicide.

4) Leave some litter-sticks, dead leaves for the larvae.

5) I've a shady area that nothing grows on it not even grass that I pour some water on it from the rain barrel. No standing water but I suspect the fireflies need some sort of water source to survive.

Feel free to google more about their habitat and or write to me about them. If we all work together, I'm sure we'll see more of them in Alton Village!
