Lightning bugs emit yellowish light signals during their mating season. The enzyme luciferase (meaning “light bringing”) is responsible for this bioluminescence. Knowing this, it would seem plausible to assume that Lightning bug yellow could bring light to dark architectural spaces. Unfortunately, the ability to create light is restricted to the bioluminescent insects. Yellow walls can reflect ambient light but they cannot increase it. With direct, warm lighting of any kind, this paint color will reflect the warmth to create a delightful glow.
