How to catch rare July bugs and deep-sea creatures in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Rare July bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
All the new rare July bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons spawn on trees and can easily be caught using a bug net if players are careful enough. The bugs that sell for and above 10,000 bells are Scarab Beetle, Giant Stag, Golden Stag, Giraffe Stag, and Horned Hercules.
All these rare July bugs belong to the beetle species in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Scarab Beetle and Giant Stag spawn on any tree between 11 PM - 8 AM while the other three bugs only spawn on Palm trees between 5 PM - 8 AM.
Approaching these rare bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the hardest part. Players should have their net ready even before they start walking. Next, they should hold A and walk forward a few steps at a time. Finally, once the bug is in the catching range of the net, players can release A and catch it.
