How to Catch Horned Hercules in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

by Nicholas Barth

One of the most exciting aspects of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is when a different month arrives. The reasoning for why it is an exciting time when a different month comes is the addition of bugs that were not available for players to encounter and catch in the previous month. This will be the case for July, as players will have a group of bugs that they now have the opportunity to catch. One of these bugs is the Horned Hercules, and we have everything you need to know to catch a Horned Hercules covered for you.

Players will find that the Horned Hercules will spawn on the palm trees on your island. You will be able to find this creature on palm trees between 5 PM and 8 AM, which means that players do have to dedicate a portion of time during a specific period of time to have a chance of getting this bug for their collection.

The Horned Hercules will spawn in the world of the latest entry in the fan-favorite Nintendo franchise between July and August, which means that players who are interested in getting this bug will have plenty of time to do so throughout the next couple of months.
