According to articles i read, all natural. They apparently are luminescent 24/7, but the human eye can only pickthe luminescence during near dark conditions.

Agreed! They are cute, but they can be nasty. I ended up almost face to face with a 25lb'er years ago while on a ladder and it was dark. Don't mind saying i was scared $hitless!! Of course, i was there to exterminate them, maybe they knew........lol
