Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Complete guide to bugs to catch

Who I am

After completing the whole list of fish (of which you can find the complete guide here on Gameplay CafΓ¨), it's time to take a sparkling net and go in search of all the insects featured in the Nintendo Switch exclusive life simulator.

The guide that you can find below is dynamic and allows you to sort insects by month of appearance, by rarity or by price, offering a dynamic tool based on the monthly needs of searching for the rarest animals. As for fish, also for insects it must be taken into account that some of them appear in specific places or having particular conditions of objects, flowers or atmospheric.



As with the fish fauna collections, they were created two tables different for the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere, to cope with the habit of some player who has chosen an island located beyond the equator.

NB If you find English names of some insects know that they will be updated as soon as their Italian versions are revealed.
