With games like Animal Crossing and Dinkum introducing players to features like fishing and bug-catching, it is no wonder the newly released Coral Island has implemented similar systems. From critters to butterflies, the new farming game has a variety of insects to collect. If you are wondering how to catch bugs in Coral Island, read on below for our guide.
Catching Bugs in Coral Island
The first thing you need to catch bugs is a bug net. You will get a letter prompting you to visit Sunny’s Beach Shack (pictured on the map below). This should happen after an in-game day or so of playing. After receiving the letter, be sure to go to their shop and you should get both a bug net and a fishing rod. If your inventory is full, these items will be sent to your mailbox back at your farm.
Now that you have a bug net, you can catch bugs! Walk slowly toward any bug you see and click toward it to aim the net. If you fail the first catch, try again until the bug is fully alert and escaping.
After getting the normal bug net and using it like this, you may notice your aim is difficult to control. If you find yourself having trouble, you can go back to the beach shack and buy an improved bug net that offers a cone to show where you are aiming.
What to Do With Bugs
Once you have caught a bug, you can donate it to the museum or sell it! If it is your first time catching that certain kind, we recommend you donate it.
