Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch Mosquitoes

With Summer comes annoying, buzzing and biting Mosquitoes. Here's how to catch them.

The month of June signals the start of Summer for the Northern Hemisphere of Animal Crossing New Horizons and that can only mean one thing—Mosquitoes! These pesky little bugs start cropping up as the sun starts to set, and will try to bite you. You can catch them however, and it's fairly easy once you know what to look for. To help you catch one, we've put together this guide. Let's take a look at catching Mosquitoes.

How to Catch Mosquitoes in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To catch a Mosquito in Animal Crossing New Horizons, head outside between the hours of 5pm and 4am. We found the best way to catch them was to stand still and wait. Mosquitoes tend to spawn near your character, as they will try to bite you. They are extremely small, and don't make any discernible sound. Mosquitoes only spawn in the months of June-Sept in the Northern Hemisphere, and Dec-Mar in the Southern Hemisphere.

Can Mosquitoes Bite You?

Mosquitoes can indeed bite your character. When they get close, they will circle the player three times before biting. This bite can interrupt fishing, even when you have a fish on the line. Mosquito bites do not behave like stings from Scorpions (more on those here) or Wasps (find out how to catch Wasps here), so you won't faint when bitten, and will not need to use medicine.

We have plenty more Animal Crossing New Horizons guides to check out. You can find close to 100 guides right here on USG, and if you head to our AC: New Horizons Walkthrough you'll see them all in one handy place. From guides on the different kinds of buildings, to detailed breakdowns of how to catch specific bugs and fish, we've got you covered.

Mosquito Sell Price

Mosquitos can be a little bit of a hassle to catch, and they aren't really worth the effort after you've caught one for Blathers. They sell for 130 Bells at Nook's Cranny, and 195 Bells if you give them to Flick.

There's a whole lot more Animal Crossing to enjoy right here on USG. First up, there's our look at the Hong Kong protests that have happened in the game. Once you've checked that out you should read Caty's review of the game.

He has an unhealthy obsession with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and would pretty much trade a kidney for Skate 4 at this point.
