How to catch a Walking Stick in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

The Walking Stick is a bug that spawns on the side of trees when it is their season. In the Northern Hemisphere, it spawns between July and November. As for the Southern Hemisphere, just add six months to this slot mentioned above. So the problem is not with the season as it has quite a season for spawning. The problem with catching this bug is that it only spawns in the early morning from 4 AM to 8 AM. And in the evening from 5 PM to 7 PM. Most people don’t wake up that early, so this makes things difficult. Yes, there is a slot in the evening too, but since it is an evening slot, the competition to catch it during this time is also very high.

So your best bet would be to wake up at least sometime around 6 AM and looking around your Island’s trees and try to spot a Walking Stick stuck on one of the trees. It can be tough to spot, though, as you can very easily mistake for another bug too.


Now you can trade in the Walking Stick for 600 bells, which is indeed very less, especially considering how tough it is to catch one. But most people look for this bug mostly for Critterpedia, and if you are also one of them, then you should try waking up early in the morning to catch one of these. You don’t need to search around in the ground, as these bugs only stick to the trees. So just keep an eye on the trees, especially the coconut trees.
