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

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

September is nearly over, which means some of the critters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are leaving as the seasons change.

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 players are losing lots of critters. Summer is over, which means temperatures are dropping and waters are getting colder, so say goodbye to all the sharks and a large chunk of the bugs. Meanwhile, not many things are leaving the Southern Hemisphere, but since it’s approaching spring, many critters will likely start appearing next month.
