One of the most exciting aspects of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is when a different month arrives, and players can encounter and catch a variety of various bugs and fish in the game's environment. The Violin Beetle is one of the bugs that has made its arrival in the popular game for the month of May. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know to find and catch the Violin Beetle in Animal Crossing: New Horizons covered for you.

Players will find that the Violin Beetle can be found on tree stumps, so individuals interested in catching this critter during May will need to make their way towards the stumps of trees they have cut down to have a chance of getting a Violin Beetle. However, this particular insect only appears during the month of May in the Northern Hemisphere, so, unfortunately, players in the Southern Hemisphere will not have a chance this month to acquire this creature during May. It will be in the North Hemisphere until the end of June, where it will not be available for players to encounter and catch until September. 

The Violin bug will spawn on the island throughout the day. This spawning schedule means players who wish to add this bug to their collection do not need to look for it during a dedicated spawning schedule to have a chance of finding and catching this bug.
