With only one day left until the Seventh Festival – the 7th day of the 7th lunar month (also known as Chinese Valentine), revenue from online sales of fireflies – the symbol of love in this country – has begun to skyrocket.

According to Ms. Li, fireflies are popular gifts for residents in Shanghai, Beijing, Zhejiang and Guangdong.

Fireflies are considered a symbol of love in China.

Xie Chaoyang, a 22-year-old student from East China University (Shanghai) said: `I will buy my girlfriend some if she likes it. 5 yuan is not too expensive to create romance.`

However, according to Professor Fu Xinhua of Huazhong Agricultural University (Wuhan), this animal is not easy to care for and transport.

Mr. He Jianming, a firefly breeder, admitted that transporting fireflies is very difficult, especially in the summer.

However, Professor Fu believes that selling fireflies online will destroy the mainland firefly industry, as well as go against the movement to build firefly tourist areas in Japan, Malaysia and Thailand.
