Bugs in New Horizons


Introduction

One of our favorite past-times is back: bug catching! There are 80 different kinds of bugs to catch in New Horizons, which is an increase of 8 from New Leaf, which only had 72 bugs. Use your Critterpedia to keep track of all the bugs you've caught and which ones have been donated to the museum! Your Critterpedia will also show you each bugs' seasonality and its active hours. We've compiled everything for you below to use!
