You don't have to shake the nest to get a bee. Sometimes, they fly around town(one at a time), and they are really easy to just catch them. It's currently April in my town, and they're all over the place.

That's the honey bee. They're different from the ones you get from shaking trees

It's very possible to run away from bee's if you run in a circle and time it good. You can run as long as you want, but it's difficult in a forest among lots of trees.. this is also the strat I used to catch bees.. I shook one down, pulled out my net (d-pad) then ran away and when they approached i ran in a circle until finally i was far away and could turn and swing..

The whole "cliff myth" is not a myth. But it is too tricky to rely on. My wife fluked catching the Scorpion inadvertently using the cliff method near the beach. Scorpion was running at my wife but she was safe as it was running at the cliff she was standing on. She just put out her net and plonk!

I've caught most of my tarantula and scorpions with the cliff method.  The last one was nice enough to give me a chance to take a few swings at it to find the perfect spot.  Last night the tarantual got behind me on top of the cliff.  My biggest trouble is finding them in the first place, or when I do find them they are not in a location I can drive them over the cliff.

I finally caught the Tarantula and Scorpion in my town! I took advise on bare ground for Tarantulas, and I have coral along the beach for the Scorpion. I'm laughing about the bare ground though since I caught my Tarantula in the grass, but perhaps the bare ground is where it spawned? The scorpion I caught on the beach. It's weird, because he was facing me, and it looked like it was stuck in the sand when I caught him. I crept up a little bit at a time until I was close enough, all the while thinking he's gonna get me, since he seemed to be in the offensive mode with his legs scrabbling in the sand and WHAM! I got him!

Question:
Catching a tarantula made it easier on City Folk using ramps but there aren't any that I have seen in New Leaf.
I have a new leaf game now, so my question is: What's the easiest way to catch a tarantula in New Leaf?
