How to catch the Walking Stick in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

How to upgrade Nook’s Cranny to Nooklings in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

For the start of July, a bunch of new and interesting bugs have been added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Nintendo is going all-in on the Summer feel with the Summer update, adding diving and swimming, but that’s not all. Along with all the new stuff, there’s also a large population of deep-sea creatures coming to your island as well. Nintendo has also shuffled around the bug and fish spawns this month, adding some new elements like the Walking Stick in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Walking Stick in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. is based on the bug in the real world, and it looks quite convincing as natural camouflage. You can seek out this new buggy friend and either sell it for Bells or hand it over to Blathers to add to the museum. The bug is worth 600 Bells when sold. So once you donate one to the museum, take the rest to Nook’s Cranny to get some nice Bells.

This particular bug isn’t like other bugs though, since it has unique spawn mechanics. Have your Net ready to go and start patrolling, here’s how to spot this bug species. You’ll find Walking Sticks sitting in a couple of places. The Walking Stick will often be found sitting on the trees around your island. Sometimes they can also spawn on stumps left behind by cut down trees. If you move slowly when you get close, you should be able to catch it no problem. Just walk slowly by holding the A button with your net out and you will be fine.

The Walking Stick bug is available at these dates and times for each hemisphere:

Northern Hemisphere

  • July, August, September, October, and November
  • 4 am to 8 am, and then 5 pm to 7 pm
