How to Find (& Catch) the Rosalia Batesi Beetle in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has many different insects to collect. The Rosalia Batesi Beetle is one of the trickier ones to find and catch.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the latest in a franchise of games in which players take on the role of a human (with odd proportions) living in a village with anthropomorphic animals. This game took the world by storm on March 20, 2020, selling millions of copies. Players have spent many, many hours on its sandy shores. In numerous ways, it is an excellent game to play to relax when there is so much in life that is stressful. Seeing as how travel is extremely limited right now, why not visit an island getaway, even if it is digital?

There is no shortage of things to do in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fishing, swimming, designing patterns for clothing, trying to discern real artwork from fake, and catching bugs are all activities in the game. Players who want to catch all the bugs to fill up the museum’s bug gallery need to know about the conditions in which bugs, such as the Rosalia Batesi Beetle will appear.

Finding Rosalia Batesi Beetles can be difficult. Many insects in Animal Crossing: New Horizons fly, crawl on the ground, or even skitter across the water. Players will come across them as they explore the island. Not so with the Rosalia Batesi Beetle. In fact, unless players cut down a tree and leave the stump, the Rosalia Batesi Beetle will never show up at all. All that’s needed is to either buy or craft an axe and get to chopping. Note that a stone or flimsy axe will not do, no matter how much chopping is done.

Other bugs can appear on tree stumps as well. Which ones depend on the month and time of day. The Rosalia Batesi Beetle appears from May through September in the northern hemisphere and November through March in the southern hemisphere. It can be caught at any hour of the day. The beetle is quite distinctive, with a bright blue color. When it comes time to catch it, be careful to approach it slowly. Equip the net, hold the A button, and inch forward with the left stick. Otherwise, it will fly off.

Once the Rosalia Batesi Beetle is caught, it is time to make a decision. Selling the bug can be quite profitable. Timmy and Tommy in Nook’s Cranny will buy it for 3000 bells. Flick, who shows up occasionally, will buy it for 3600. Still don’t forget to donate one to the museum. Blathers will appreciate the donation, even though he might not show it. offers cheap bells and all items for Animal Crossing New Horizons, cheap price, fast delivery, 100% legit to trade online.
