June has brought a number of new critters for players to catch, from exotic sharks to the pretty Firefly. Here we’ll explain how to catch the humble Drone Beetle in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including information on its location and how much you can expect to sell it for at Nook’s Cranny.
Drone Beetle Seasonality & Spawn Times
The Done Beetle’s seasonality is an easy one to remember since it only spawns during the summer months. Of course, the exact months differ depending on which hemisphere you’re playing in.
- Northern Hemisphere – June, July, August
- Southern hemisphere – December, January, February
During these months, the Drone Beetle can only be caught at any time, so there’s no specific window of the day you’ll need to be playing in order to locate one.
