Helpful Tips on Bugs
You can shake tree's to get money/items, but occasionally there will be bees. You can try to catch them but that's risky. When a bee's nest falls, run! But run in circles so the bee's will have trouble getting to you. Once you get close to a house/building get in quick. (Avoid homes who's lights are not on.)
For beatles or stags on tree's, walk up VERY slowly! If you walk to fast, it will fly away. It's a tricky bug to catch.
If you walk around and you see a big spider (tarantula) on the ground...keep your distance. If your too close, it will bite you in the leg and you will restart back in your home. Also be quick when catching it because you never know when it will strike.
If your walking around and you here an annoying noise it's a mole cricket . (They're underground.) Take out your shovel (have your net ready in your pocket) and dig. If the noise gets quieter your getting to far away from it and you have to go back where you heard the noise or where it's louder or loudest. Once you dig it up catch it. It is a pretty easy bug to catch whens its on ground.
If your trying to catch a bag worm, shake pine trees only. Once it comes down (it won't fall on the ground) catch it. If your not quick enough, it will go back in the tree.
With pill bugs or centipedes, you must hit rocks. Pill bugs are easier to find than centipedes, but keep trying!
Butterflies are pretty self-explanitory but you can only find them by, on, or around flowers.
Snails are found on flowers, but easier to fin when it's raining.
Note: When rare flowers appear, rare bugs appear.
