Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Honeybee

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020 8:36 am

These critters are far less dangerous than wasps.

From butterflies to moths, there are lots of flying insects to catch and donate in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of the smallest is the honeybee.

Unlike wasps (which appear when you shake trees), honeybees won’t try to sting your character. Instead, they’re a “normal” insect that you can simply catch, donate, and sell for Bells (or trade to Flick).

Players with islands in the Northern Hemisphere can catch honeybees from March to July. According to GameWith, players with islands in the Southern Hemisphere can catch these insects from September to January. The honeybee can appear at any time between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The honeybee is a really small insect (though not as small as the mosquito), and it may be difficult to spot when it’s flying around items like orange flowers. Check out our gameplay clip below to see what a honeybee looks like when it’s flying around your island. This will also give you an idea of how much this insect can blend in with its environment!

Honeybees are pretty common, and they’re not worth much if you decide to sell them. A single honeybee goes for only 200 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, but you can earn a bit more if you sell these insects to Flick instead.
