As is the case every month, the beginning of a new one marks the time that the fish and bugs you can catch in Animal Crossing New Horizons change. July is the time you see the kinds of bugs you’ll see in the real world during the summer. So that you can get a step closer to filling Blathers’ museum, here’s everything you need to know about the Cicada Shell in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including where to find it and how much it sells for.
Cicada Shell Spawn Times & Location in Animal Cross New Horizons
The Cicada Shell is classed as an uncommon bug and you will only be able to find it during the following months for each hemisphere.
- Northern Hemisphere: July – August
- Southern Hemisphere: January – February
During these months, the Cicada Shell can be caught at any time. Unlike a lot of the stag-type bugs that are exclusive to the same months, you’re not limited to catching it during the nighttime hours.
How to Catch
The Cicada Shell will only spawn on trees. Thankfully, it’s any of the standard trees that you’ll have all over your island, and not just palm trees. Simply head to one of them and keep your fingers crossed that it has spawned there.
Get your net out and hold A to sneak towards the bug, letting go when next to it to grab it. If you’ve done it at the right time, your little character will show it off before putting it away.
Cicada Shell Sell Price
Once you’ve caught one and if you don’t want to donate it to Blathers so that he can show off in his museum, you can sell it to Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny for 10 bells. If Flick visits your island though, you can sell it to him for 50% more, netting you 15 bells.
That’s everything you need to know about the Cicada Shell in Animal Crossing New Horizons. For more tips and tricks on the ever-evolving game, be sure to check out our wiki guide or search for Twinfinite.
