Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Giant Cicada
Here's everything you need to know about catching this insect.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are a few insects that make noise, allowing you to potentially hear them before you see them. The giant cicada is one of these insects, and it’s now appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere!
To be specific, the giant cicada will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from July to August. According to All Gamers, it will appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from January to February. The giant cicada appears on the sides of trees, and you can find them at any time between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Like the brown cicada, the giant cicada will make noise as it hangs on the side of a tree. Check out our gameplay video below to hear this sound, so you’ll know what to listen for as you’re playing.
Each giant cicada is worth 500 Bells if you sell it at Nook’s Cranny. They’re worth a bit more if you sell them to Flick when he visits your island. Keep in mind that you’ll also need to donate at least one of these bugs to Blathers at the museum if you want to finish your museum collection.
