While playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons you will, like many players, be rushing around your island trying to collect every single insect in the game in order to make some quick money, and fill up the Museum was fascinating exhibits. I respect the hustle, honestly.

Which is why I have to deliver to you some a full list of every single bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizon's Critterpedia, so you can easily see at a glance how to find those bugs missing from your Museum, and find out which bugs are worth the most money so you can get a tidy profit from Nook's Cranny.

Keep in mind, bug hunting is especially lucrative when Flick is in town. He will pay a premium price for all bugs you bring to him, in addition to crafting you unique and special bug models in exchange for three of the desired insect. Not bad at all.
