Camping Sweetie Bag - Glow Worms
How to find glow real actual glow worms in the UK: Late June and early July is the best time to go on a glow-worm hunt. A good place to try is your nearest grassland nature reserve. Choose a still, warm evening with a crescent moon (glow-worms are less likely to glow with a full moon), and try not to use a torch. Let your eyes adjust to the dark, and then you are more likely to pick out the faint green glow of the glow-worm. The flightless females are the ones who do most of the glowing, climbing up tall grass stalks, producing a greenish light to attract males (who look like typical beetles) as they fly along open areas in search of a mate. This bioluminescence is created through a chemical reaction in the beetle’s abdomen. It’s not only the female that glows: the larvae can glow as well, and even glow-worm eggs can emit light.
Alternatively, buy yourself a bag of gummy sour glow worms from us, and gobble them all up.
