Catch these Animal Crossing: New Horizons bugs and fish before August ends

August is coming to an end, which means some of the critters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are going to vanish.

To help make sure you grab what you can before they disappear, we’ve put together a list of things to hunt down and fill out the the Museum.

While folks who time travel don’t have as much to worry about when it comes to catching this variety of bugs, people playing by the day will not want to wait months to continue their collection.

For fish, we recommend using bait, crafted using the manila clams that you can dig up on the beach, to quickly spawn fish in the desired location. Simply make the bait at your crafting table and toss it into the water from your inventory.

The Northern Hemisphere is losing a ton of critters, including cicadas and nearly all the exotic beetles. The Southern Hemisphere isn’t saying goodbye to much, some of the sea creatures that can only be caught by diving are leaving.
