It’s a new month, and that means new critters. On the first of every month, Animal Crossing: New Horizons rotates new bugs and fish in and out of availability, on a set schedule based on the month. The list are different depending on which Hemisphere you chose at the beginning of the game, but you’re almost always going to see some number of new bugs, and bugs that have left for the season.

New September Bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Much like our fish guide, we like to organize these lists by Hemisphere. First is the most important part, the new bugs you’ll see starting today. The second list you won’t have to worry about until the end of the month. That one is every bug leaving once October lands. Check it out:
