How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Step on the Cockroaches

Cockroach Ghost
To get rid of Cockroaches, you need to step on them with your character.

Once you've gotten rid of all Cockroaches, you will make a celebratory reaction!

Got rid of all cockroaches (Japanese)
If you manage to get rid of all Cockroaches within your house, your character will make a happy reaction and a message will appear. If you killed some Cockroaches but haven't seen the message yet, it means there are still Cockroaches left in your house somewhere.

Continue looking until you get rid of all of them!

Move Furniture

It's possible that the Cockroaches are hiding below you furniture. Move them around until you find the sneaky buggers.

Look in Other Rooms

Find Cockroaches in all rooms
If you've expanded your house, Cockroaches will appear in other rooms as well. If you have several rooms, there's also a chance that a new Cockroach will spawn in a room you've already been in when moving in-between rooms, so check all rooms carefully.

How to Catch Cockroaches

Cockroaches can't be caught in New Horizons

In previous Animal Crossing games, you could find Cockroaches on trees and catch them. Unfortunately, New Horizons only have the sneaky Cockroaches that appear inside your house, and you are unable to catch them.

Cockroaches Appear After 1 Month of Not Playing

Cockroach Surprise
Cockroaches will appear if you don't play for more than a month, or if you skip ahead in time with Time Travel.

The more time passes, the more Cockroaches will spawn, so check in often to avoid your house being taken over by them!
