Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Red Dragonfly
Everything you need to know.
September is almost here, which means new insects will soon start appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of these bugs is the red dragonfly.
Here’s everything you need to know about finding and catching one of these flying insects!
The red dragonfly will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from September to October. According to AllGamers, they’ll show up on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from March to April. Red dragonflies can appear between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Red dragonflies are pretty easy to spot when they’re flying around your island, since they have a bright red body. Check out our short gameplay clip below to see how a red dragonfly behaves as it flies.
A red dragonfly can be sold for 180 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, or for a bit more if you sell it to Flick when he visits your island. Also remember that you’ll need to donate one of these insects to Blathers at the museum if you want to finish your museum’s insect collection.
In our experience, the red dragonfly is a fairly common insect in New Horizons. Even so, it will still take you quite some time to track down one of every bug in the game. 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.
