The only thing i've observed from them is that I think tarantulas are a little more common, I've seen more but never been able to catch one

I know that they are really difficult, and I've never had much luck. I always try to have one tool out that I know is right before my net. Then, when I spot one, I run a little ways from it so I can ready my net first. Then it seems like all reaction time from there.

I don't think they exist!
I saw 2 tarantulas in the first week or 2...and ever since they've all vanished. GRRRRR! lol
I hunt for them every night...one of these nights I need to drink a pot of coffee and drink a 2 liter of mountain dew so I can stay up all night walking around my town looking!
/sigh...

Every Since I've been playing, I've seen ONE scorpion after looking for HOURS, I think scorpions are more aggersive, but tarantulas run away faster!

Tarantulas are quite easy to catch once you know how:

Don't wait for it to see you. Wait for it to turn around and then run up to it and swing.

"I know that they are really difficult, and I've never had much luck."


Interesting. I don't see how people are having difficulty... o___o

I simply walk up and catch with the net. Didn't know you needed a strategy.

"Don't wait for it to see you. Wait for it to turn around and then run up to it and swing."


Agreed.

I don't think I'll have trouble catching one now that I'm looking for them.
The difficulty I'm having...is actually seeing them. I look and I look and I just never see one in my town.

I saw 1 tarantula and 2 scorpions. When I saw the first scorpion I didn't have my net. When I saw the tarantula it was on the starting screen by a villagers house and when the game loaded and I got there, it was no longer there. And the second scorpion was by a house that was by a cliff, didn't startle it or anything, it just fell off on it on while walking, so I ran down to the beach to find it, but it was gone. I have amazing luck at finding them at inconvenient times and places...

I saw a few scorpions but  then when I was mentally prepared after having several heart attacks on the first ones, I tried sneaking up on a scorpion, but I lost sight of it, and I couldn't find it. c:

Depending on what the "Bus Stop" PWP is like (Just a sign, or a small ramp like City Folk), I might just glitch 'em like I did on the Wii.

I have difficulty with these bugs because I scream and run when they spot me.  I always come upon one when I am playing with the volume down and I'm completely unprepared.  I lack the patience I had for hunting these in Wild World.  XD  One of these days...!

Tip 1: They don't show up online or when your gates are open.
,
Tip 2: Scare other bugs away for a better chance at finding them.

Tip 3: Walk around with your net, if they see you and give chase, try to catch them bee style.  If they don't see you then walk up to them slowly like you're catching one of the rarer palm tree beetles.

Yuka was wanting to replace her daffodil in her house with something, and I had a tarantula, so.. You can guess what happened.

I heard somewhere that if you hold down A with your net (holding it ready), they won't chase you. Citation/confirmation needed.

I've caught the scorpion twice now, but I can never seem to get it right with the tarantula.  I have a hard enough time getting one to show, and then it either suicides in the river, disappears, or attacks me.

Only at night, and yes if you walk very slow with your net they wont attack I stop if they face me still but I have seen people just sneak very slow.
