Hey guys. So as you may or may not have heard, the legit way to making tons of bells in the new ACNL is via beetle farming. I personally can make anywhere between 350k-450k per 45 minutes of farming. I was a little confused at first when I heard about it, but once I started it proved very easy and effective. So I figured I'd post up a really quick how-to video on getting this done.
There are a few requirements you must consider first.
1) You must have access to the island 2) You must be willing to chop down and/or remove the majority of island greenery 3) Beetles are only available between 8PM-7AM to farm.
If you can handle all that, take a look at the video below. Hope this helps!
Ah, thanks for the notes. I did not realize they came out before 8PM. I really need to pick up the guide, hah. And yeah I should do away with the back 2 trees on each side, leaving like 2 on each coast.
Golden stags are 12k The ones on the banana tree that you need to walk extra slowly w/ the net are worth 12k usually The others where you can walk at normal speed w/ net out like elephant beetle are 8k
also don't forget the bell ordinance that's a whooping 14.4k or 9.6k each

I hope we can be our honest selves forever
I don't have the heart to chop down most of my island greenery. I think of that as "Donald Trumping" your island lol. I do think it is still pretty easy to make a ton of money without getting rid of most of your trees as the island is so small. But I can understand all you tycoons wanting to try this as you can always replant your trees later.

Here's a little tip for sneaking up, there are faint, but still visible, lines along the sand going horizontally across the island. A full grown palm tree's shadow passes one line right infront, so the line before that is the max distance able to catch! Good luck!
You don't need to chop down any trees. Just get rid of the flowers, so the butterflies won't come. Horned Hercules and golden stag are 12,000 and found on the palm/coconut/banana trees. the middle island trees contain rainbow and giant stags worth 10,000, so you don't want to chop those down Cyclommatus Stag, horned atlus, and horned elephant are 8,000 each, and goliath beetle is 6,000.
Those are the big money bugs. Anything else doesn't seem worth it to me, but getting only these takes considerably longer.
