Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Blue Weevil Beetle
This lovely insect will appear on the sides of palm trees.
When you think of “pretty” insects in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you might initially think of butterflies like the Queen Alexandra’s birdwing or the emperor butterfly. However, they aren’t the only “pretty” insects in the game. Another lovely bug is the blue weevil beetle, which is now appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere.
The blue weevil beetle will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from July to August. According to AllGamers, it will appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from January to February. This insect can appear on the sides of palm trees at any time of day.
The blue weevil beetle has a bright teal coloring that easily stands out against the tan trunk of a palm tree. Check out our short gameplay clip below to see exactly what one of these insects looks like when it’s hanging on the side of a tree!
Blue weevil beetles can be sold for 800 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, or for a bit more if you sell them to Flick when he visits your island. Also keep in mind that you’ll need to donate one of these insects if you want to complete your museum’s insect collection.
In our experience, the blue weevil beetle isn’t as common as insects like butterflies and locusts, so it may take you some time to track one down. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
