The Spider is one of many different creatures you’ll need to catch to complete Blather’s museum and your own Critterpedia in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to catch a Spider in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where it can be found, and how much it’ll sell for.
Catching a Spider
The Spider can be found all year long in both Northern and Southern hemisphere islands. However, it can only be found during the hours of 7pm – 4am.
The Spider’s also different to a lot of other bugs in the game because it doesn’t just spawn out in the open. Instead, players will need to go around shaking trees.
If you’re lucky, you’ll see one drop from a web and hang from the top of the tree. When this happens, you need to quickly equip your Net, line it up, and press A to swing it. As long as you’ve lined it up and you’re quick enough, you’ll catch the Spider.
Not every tree on your island will contain a Spider, and even if something does fall and hang out of the tree, it could be a Bagworm. Spiders tend to be a little rarer, but once you’ve found a tree with one in it, you can keep shaking it over and over until you manage to catch it (if you don’t the first time).
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Spider Sell Price
Timmy and Tommy will buy a Spider from you for 480 Bells. If Flick shows up on your island, though, he’ll buy it for 1.5x its standard value. That means it can be sold to Flick for 720 Bells if you’re lucky.
