I forgot something very important. Light, streetlights, yard lights any light that comes on and stays on at dusk deterrs fireflies. Tree canopy, Shrubs and hedges, the house itself can provide dark corners and dim open spaces if you use outdoor lights that only come on when people are actually present for safety but go off when there is no motion.
