A brand-new event has arrived in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, unlike any other event before it! “Summertime Bug Catching” involves — what else? — catching bugs for prizes! Since this is a new type of event, it’s understandable that you might be a little lost as to how it all works. Don’t you worry about a thing, young grasshopper. Let’s walk you through how to play “Summertime Bug Catching.”

How it works

“Summertime Bug Catching” is pretty simple when you break it down. During the event period, new Event Goals are available, all involving catching a certain number of bugs. If you meet those goals, you’ll receive fortune cookies as prizes. There are three bugs you’ll need to focus on, all of which are found on Sunburst Island: the fruit beetlehorned dynastid and goliath beetle. Easy peasy, right? Keep scrolling for a full list of goals you’ll need to hit, along with their rewards.

Note: This event runs from Aug. 22 at 11:00 p.m. PST to Aug. 29 at 10:59 p.m. PST.

Spawn rates

During “Summertime Bug Catching,” certain bugs have a higher spawn rate (how often each bug will appear) — the goliath beetle and cyclommatus stag. Here’s a full list of spawn rates during the event, as well as catch rates from using honey:
