The Scorpion is a uncommon bug and sells for 8,000 Bells.
|Location||On the ground|

7 PM to 4 AM
November to April
7 PM to 4 AM
You can find the Scorpion on the ground from 7 PM to 4 AM.
Find it from May to October on the Northern Hemisphere, or from November to April on the Southern Hemisphere.
Scorpions only appear late at night. If you want to catch this critter, you'll either need to wait until 7 PM, or set your clock forward a few hours.
Scorpions are one of the highest-selling bugs. If you need cash to pay your house loan, getting to Scorpions Island is a great way to earn lots of Bells!
With a selling price of 8,000 Bells at Nook's Cranny, catching Scorpions is a high-risk, high-reward activity.
The biggest benefit to hunting Scorpions on a Mystery Island is that you wake up on the same island if you get stung and pass out.
They will also spawn at a higher rate than on your own island, allowing you to quickly get back to hunting!
There are two ways to get to a Scorpion Island:
There is a variety of island types you can land on in a Mystery Island Tour, and one of them spawns infinite Scorpions at a high rate!
To learn more about other types of islands, check out our Mystery Island Tours guide.
To fly to a mystery island, you need to redeem 2,000 Nook Miles or trade online for a Nook Miles Ticket.

|1||Pick all the flowers and weeds by pressing the Y button.|
|2||Chop down all the trees with an axe and pull up the stumps with a shovel.|
|3||Eat fruits to break all the rocks with a shovel or axe.|
|4||Wait for the Scorpions to spawn.|
Unlike other bugs, rain does not deter Scorpions from spawning so once you find an raining mystery island, your best bet would be to stay on it!
Bamboo Islands reduce the spawn chances of any bugs found on water becuase these island have no rivers or ponds. This will leave less options for the game to spawn bugs other than the coveted Scorpion.
Players have noticed these islands spawn Tarantulas and Scorpion slower and less frequently in the past months. Instead, other bugs such as the Giant Water Bug, spawn more instead of their target bug.
We speculate that Nintendo patched in an update that decreased the spawn rates of rarer bugs and increased more common ones.
After upgrading your pocket space, you should be able to carry 40 items. Upgrade your pocket space first before you go scorpion-hunting!
If you're planning to sell your Scorpions, save them for when Flick visits your town! Flick will buy any insect at double the value than what it sells for at Nook's Cranny.
|Nook's Cranny||8,000 Bells|
If you can't find Flick on regular days, wait for the next Bug-Off to sell him your Scorpions. Be sure to check you island's Bulletin Board to the left of Resident Services to know when the next Bug-Off will be!
After getting bitten by a Scorpion, you will faint and the screen blacks out. However, you will wake up at the island port, and you can continue your bug catching.
Dig a perimeter of holes that you can jump into for safety. Scorpions will not be able to jump over them, so you're safe.
While in your safe space, catch a scorpion chasing you by using your net to catch the critter. It won't reach across the hole!
Get rid of all the weeds, flowers, and rocks for better visibility and to avoid surprise attacks. Drop the items cluttering up your inventory on the beach!
