Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bug Prices – when and where to find every bug

Hiding on rocks, between flowers and in the trees, is a whole tiny world of bugs to collect in Animal Crossing:New Horizons! Get your net at the ready, here’s when and where you can find each and every bug and arachnid, along with when they unlock and a list of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons bug prices so you know which to prioritise in your inventory. We’ve updated the month-to-month tables to include the prices of every bug too.

Insects, mini-beasts, creepy-crawlies. Whatever you call them, collecting arachnids and bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons makes up an important part of your island experience. Whether you’re snagging bugs to sell at Nook’s Cranny or to gift to Blathers at the museum, it’s not always about where you look, but when.

Every 4th Saturday throughout the summer, the Bug Off event runs with Flick – so check that out too.

In a brutal turn of events for those of us who can only play when we get home from work, many of the bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons only appear at certain times of day. Even then, some are a lot rarer than others and don’t always spawn.

What’s more, there’s a rotating calendar of scurrying creatures that only appear during specific months of the year.

How to catch bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons:

With your net – flimsy or otherwise – equipped, you need to sneak up on bugs to catch them. If you hold down the A button, you will ready your net and walk extra-slowly towards your target. Releasing the A button will drop the net on the unsuspecting bug.

There are several types of insectoid critter to find. They can buzz and fly around in the air, crawl along the floor, appear nestled in flowers, under rocks, on the side of different kinds of trees, fall out of trees when you shake them, on tree stumps when you cut them, and even – in the case of the flea – be seen jumping around on villager’s heads.

To aid in your quest in becoming the ultimate entomologist, we’ve collected a table of when, where, and in which month you can find every single bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons – as well as the prices you can sell the bugs for at Nook’s Cranny.

Special Villager: Flick

Sometimes on your island, a special visitor – Flick the Chameleon – can show up on your island decked out in his finest goth clobber. If you save your bugs for Flick, he’ll pay a 50% higher price than Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny.

We’ve focused on where we live in the northern hemisphere, if you live in the southern hemisphere add six months for which bugs are currently infesting your island!

For a visual representation, this data comes from the following video by YouTuber BeardBear courtesy of some hard-core time travel, we’re sure.

Give the video a watch and their channel a click. It also includes every fish, so to avoid spoilers, start at 2:02 and go until 6:41.

The additional price and location data comes from the Animal Crossing wiki community under CC-BY-SA license, which means you’re also free to use and remix the data as you like. It’s not quite complete yet, but we’ll fill in the blanks as we play.

According to the Animal Crossing Official Companion, some creepy crawlies only unlock after you’ve caught a certain amount of other bugs. We’ve updated the main table to reflect this.
