Welcome to a brand-new week. I hope you enjoyed the last lingering remnant of your innocent life, i.e. the time before you knew Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a locale players are calling "Infinite Tarantula Island." On that note, guess what? New Horizons has an island that's filled with endless tarantula spawns, and you can go there!
If you're currently playing New Horizons like 99.9% of the world, you already know you can purchase a "Nook Miles" ticket that whisks you off to a random island brimming with natural resources. These islands are perfect for when you need to hoover up nature for your own capitalistic needs, but you don't necessarily want to bung up your home island.

You have no say over which island you're sent to. The nice people at Dodo Airlines (DAL) might drop you off at an island full of flowers, or you might wind up on an island overgrown with bamboo. Ah, but you also might wind up on an island brimming with huge, hairy tarantulas, because I guess at some point, we unknowingly insulted Wilbur's mother. Wilbur, whatever we said, we're sorry and we hope we're even. (By the way, your father's butt-feathers insulate my winter coat—oh no, I just said the quiet part loud and the loud part quiet.)
If you've been sent to spider hell island for your sins, try to turn terror into opportunity. Each tarantula you catch is worth 8,000 bells. If you're a quickdraw with your net and you don't vomit in terror as soon as you witness a tarantula's threat display, you stand to rake in a ton of bells. "You can pay off your mortgage with spiders" is just one reason why the Animal Crossing universe is so magical.
And if wrangling poisonous spiders for money isn't your idea of a good time, we have a guide on lots of other ways you can make lots of bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
