The top 5 most expensive bugs in the game are all the beetles and they're also among the most difficult to catch!

It's best to hold on to these and sell them for double the price when Flick visits your island!

While these bugs are the most profitable, there are some that are easier to catch that can sell for a relatively good price!

How to Catch Bugs

Catching Bug - Rajah Brooke

In order to catch bugs, you will first need to craft or buy a Net.

After equipping the net and finding a bug, hold the A button to ready your net and creep forward, then release the A button once you are close to catch it.

Bugs are found in various different locations, and you'll have to adjust your technique in order to catch each different type!
