How to catch ants, flies and fleas in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We explain how to catch ants, flies and fleas in Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch in a simple way and step by step.

There are some critters that due to their location and capture method are difficult to capture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch . Most of us get them perched on tree stumps or trunks, flying around the island, jumping through the grass or camouflaged in the flowers themselves. But with other critters of Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch we will have to do a previous preparation. At least, be attentive for when the conditions are given to capture them and be able to donate them to the Socrates museum .

This is the case, for example, of fleas, flies and ants in Animal Crossing: New Horizons , whose method of obtaining it is quite difficult to find out if it is not previously known. Remember that in our Animal Crossing for Switch guide you can, among many other things, find the list of bugs from Animal Crossing: New Horizons and learn how to capture them. Let’s go with these three specifics.

To capture ants in Animal Crossing for Switch, you must bear in mind that the entire process will take a week, so if you don’t travel back in time, it’s quite a long preparation. Of course, it is not very complicated either.

The first thing you should do is wait for Sunday and buy turnips from the saleswoman Juliana who appears on our island. Remember that their hours are from 5:00 in the morning to 12:00 noon. You can check the islands of your friends to buy turnips at the best price; you only need one unit for this hack.

Once you have the turnips, you must wait for them to spoil and become “Last Bunch” , that is, turnips. For them you should keep them for a week: the next time Juliana shows up in your village, those turnips will already be gone. Take them and leave them on the ground, walk away and in a minute, when you come back, you will see a row of ants on the turnip that you can capture with the net.

  1. Buy Juliana a turnip on Sunday.
  2. Wait a week, until next Sunday.
  3. When the turnip is past, put it on the ground.

Catching flies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a bit easier, requiring less setup time. First of all, you must collect a good amount of garbage, which you will get mainly by fishing. Remember that even in one of the islands of miles, the garbage island, you will only catch cans, tires and boots, the three types of garbage that you can find in Animal Crossing for Switch.

Once you have the flies for the museum,  remember to collect the garbage from the garden, but do not sell it, since with it you can make interesting objects for your island.

  1. Get trash: cans, tires and old boots.
  2. They are obtained by fishing, remember that you have the garbage island with the miles.
  3. When you have several objects you must stack them on the field.

Catching fleas in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In the case of fleas, the most important thing is to be an observer. These appear on infected villagers, so you should check the status of the villagers in your town on a daily basis. In general, when they have fleas you will see them irritated before talking to them and, when you do, they will confirm that they suffer tireless itching.

When you are close to them you can notice that little black dots jump from their heads , the fleas of Animal Crossing for Switch . Once you have discovered a villager with fleas, you simply have to pass the net near his head, trapping the fleas, which carries the thanks of the villager and in a new bug for the museum.

  1. Talk to the island’s villagers daily.
  2. If they confirm that they have itching, check their heads to see if fleas jump.
  3. Run the net near their heads to catch them.
