How to… Catch a Bee: Step by step

Catching a bee can be hard work, not nearly as much as catching a tarantula, or a scorpion, but still, it certainly isn’t the easiest to catch.

To catch a bee, you are going to need:

  1. A net in your pockets
  2. Braveness: really, be brave, they can be a little scary sometimes…
  3. Trees in your town: you better not have cut them off! If you have, just buy a sapling at Nook’s and dig in a hole with a shovel, drop the sapling in it and hope for it to grow! (No water is needed, unlike with flowers)
  4. Empty hands!

What to do:

  1. Start shaking trees, until a beehive falls to the ground.
  2. Run a little bit away from the tree in a circle motion, if possible, until you’re as far away as you seem to be able to (more or less a second away from them catching you if you stop running 😛 )
  3. Open you inventory
  4. Grab the net and as fast as you can (practice makes perfect) close the inventory and start pressing swinging your net!!

4 simple steps, but they aren’t easy at all, still; practice a few times, get stung a few times and before you know it you’ll have a 4.500 bell bee in your pockets!!

Hope this helped! To know a tiny bit more about bees here you have a small technical card with its size, selling information and where or when to catch it 😉

How to… Catch Tarantulas and Scorpions: Step by step

Hello sweet pumpkins 😛 How’s summer going? Catching plenty of bugs, remember in August 42 of the 56 bugs in Animal Crossing Wild World are available to catch, including Tarantulas and Scorpions.

Since they’re the 2 hardest bugs to catch for most people, I decided to do a little step by step tutorial that will both help me and you to catch these nasty little bugs!

So let’s start by getting to know better these little (or big) bugs

 the little images of the bugs (only) are from strategywiki.org

Okay, so know that we know when and where to catch them, the bells they put in our pockets (or the occupation in our museum) we can try to catch them. Pay attention and listen to me when I say do NOT hold a net, if you do and the Scorpion or Tarantula sees you it will run to attack you!

Notes: These bugs will not appear when it’s raining/snowing or when the gate is open.

  1. WITHOUT holding a net I’d recommend  just plugging  in some headphones to our nintendo and start listening to our game, naturally, not inside any building, just outside. Meanwhile you can read something, write, play games without a lot of noise…
  2. Whenever you hear a bug sound pickup your nintendo and check if you see a Tarantula or a Scorpion, if you don’t but you still hear the noise, walk around very slowly looking for the bug, also keep your eyes open for other bugs that might have mistaken you with their sound. Remember, do NOT hold a net!!!
  3. If you have spotted your catch of the day, it’s time to spot their back. If you see a Scorpion, it’s easy, just look for its tail. And if you see a Tarantula it gets a little more complicated; try advancing slowly towards it (not holding a net) until it moves a bit, be careful not to scare it too much or it might end up running in the ocean/river. The opposite direction that it moved will be its back.
  4. Now, sneak up upon them from behind (where they can’t see you) and when you’re 100% sure they can’t see you bring out your net, advance just the right distance and…
  5. WAP! Swing your net and hope for the best!

Did you catch it? Did it run away, or did you run away? Even worst, did it sting you? Leave a response in the comments below! I will try to add pictures to this tutorial soon, whenever I spot one 🙂

If you didn’t catch it, don’t worry, there will be other times! So keep your heads up and hope for more, oh! and after you donate both bugs in the museum a surprise is waiting for you…

You can also try other methods showed in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_clvBgI2mic   I explained the easiest way that I know, but maybe you find easier one of the methods from this video. 😉

I really hope this helps you guys, the greatest of luck and… Happy Summer!!!
