I was looking in my island for nearly an hour just now... nothing. I hear they appear on trees... are they on full trees or only stumps? Also some guides say you need to catch 20 bugs first, but... what does this mean? 20 types of bugs? 20 bugs total? 20 bugs that day/play session??

Please help. I want one for Blathers (as much as he likely wouldn't!) before November ends.

I think 20 bugs just means 20 bugs total. some rarer bugs and fish are locked behind you needing to catch so many other bugs and fish first so that you don't go into the game day 1 and catch a shark right off the bat. they want to save the cooler critters for later after you've found a bunch of common things. walking sticks don't sell for very much (I think less than 1000 bells), but they are fairly rare for some reason

you find them on full trees. the problem with stick bugs is they have a gimmick where if you walk too fast near them, they turn invisible, "camouflaging" with the tree. combined with their relatively low spawn rate, that can make them pretty hard to find

I would hope that just means 20 bugs total (which shouldn’t be hard to do) but I don’t really know for sure. I’m fairly sure I didn’t have 20 caught that day before I found mine. So definitely not 20 in one play session.

They are fairly large and are found on full trees. Maybe the size of an atlas moth (in my opinion) but not as easy to spot. Never heard about them being able to turn invisible so knowing that is something I’m hoping will help me catch more for a model.

There was actually another thread about this quite recently! They're really not that rare in my experience (I actually took a screenshot the other day in which two were visible); they're just difficult to spot. I have noticed that I seem to disproportionately catch them on coconut palms. That could just be because I'm on the beach a lot, but it wouldn't surprise me if they're more common there or if they're just easier to notice there because of the slightly different wood color.
