How to Catch a Mole Cricket in Animal Crossing New Horizons
To catch a Mole Cricket in Animal Crossing New Horizons you'll need to keep an eye out for some chirping. Run around your island until you hear the sound of a cricket, and try to home in on the sound. This will take some trial and error, but try to locate the area where the sound is the loudest. Now it's just a case of digging with your shovel until it pops out. We recommend setting your net to be one press of the d-pad away from your shovel as once the bug pops out, you will need to get it with your net.
How Much Do Mole Crickets Sell For?
Mole Crickets are pretty hard to track down and you'll wear through your shovel trying to find them. They are only worth 500 Bells, which isn't exactly worth it, so we recommend just donating them to Blathers and then ignoring them.
How Often Do Mole Crickets Spawn?
Mole Crickets spawn often, and in our experience there is always one on your island at all times. Just run around until you hear it chirping. Headphones may help with this, though rest assured these bugs do make a lot of noise.
