How to Catch an Jewel Beetle

Let's take a look at the Jewel Beetle's Critterpedia information because it's good to know when you can actually catch this thing.

  • Northern Hemisphere: April - August
  • Southern Hemisphere: October - March
  • Active Hours: All Day
  • Location: Tree Stump
  • Price: 2,400 Bells

The key to catching a Jewel Beetle is that you need to chop down some trees on your island and get it to spawn on the stump. It will not spawn anywhere else, so you'll need at least a couple of stumps around to trigger a spawn. These will show up at any time of day, so just run around your island and go back to check the stumps. You can enter a house or store and that should hopefully reset your spawns.

Going to a mystery island would be a potentially quicker way to get the Jewel beetle to spawn. What you can do is chop down some trees, and then scare away any other bugs on the island. This should trigger possible spawns elsewhere on the island because bugs and fish show up far more often on mystery islands! This would be the method I would try if you're really wanting to catch this thing quickly.
