Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives you a lot of things to do as you make your new deserted island more like home. Many of the tasks simply offer furniture or other rewards, but catching bugs has always been a favorite for many. This is mostly because of the collecting nature of the game, with a multitude of species to track down and donate to the museum. But it’s also because this is a great way to make some extra Bells. But if you’re frantically tracking down bugs, your inventory can fill up fast. So let’s break down which are worth keeping and selling with our Animal Crossing: New Horizons bug prices guide.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bug Prices Guide

Below you’ll find a list of all bugs you can find in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. For convenience they are listed in alphabetical order with the Bells they are worth next to them. As you can see, the prices range wildy, going as low as 60 for the fly or as high as 400 Bells for the Emperor Butterfly and Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing.  So with a full inventory and more time left to spend on a mysterious island, or away from Nook’s Cranny, you may need to decide which to release and which to keep to sell.
