SENIOR ANALYST

Animal Crossing: New Horizons offers players the choice to catch 60 bugs in the month of July. However, out of these, 21 are unique to the summer month, and one would also leave after July ends. Therefore, while players have multiple shots at catching these bugs, they only have the next 30 days to catch the Honeybee.

To make catching bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons easier, players need to know the timing as well as the spawn location of these bugs. For all the new bugs that arrive in July, players can easily fetch a price of 10-12,000 bells ranging on their rarity.

As always, players will need a net in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to catch bugs around their island. Ultimately, it all comes down to the perfect aim and timing while pressing the A button on the Nintendo Switch.
