Catching tarantulas and selling it is one of the best ways to earn Bells fast in Animal Crossing New Horizons. They can be difficult to catch, but fear not, in this guide I will teach you the easiest way to catch tarantulas, even when you are facing an army swarming on an island.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the traditional way of catching tarantulas would be first to encounter them on an island. Approach slowly until within the perfect distance to capture them with your net. Although this will work, there is a much easier and efficient way to catch them, especially if you are on a mystery island swarming with tarantulas.
Best Way To Catch Tarantula
What you need to do is to equip yourself with a shovel, then dig a pattern that gives you an enclosure like what you see on this image below.
There are no set criteria for a perfect pattern since landscape conditions may vary from island to island. But the key point is to give yourself an enclosure that is not completely blocked off on all sides. Once you completed this step, be ready to catch your tarantula by equipping your net.
- Approach a tarantula.
- Get its attention.
- Have it chase you.
- Run quickly toward your created enclosure and get inside for safety.
If successful, you will notice the tarantula will not be able to enter your enclosure and will run around on the outside border.
It is then you can safely catch it with your net without worry. If you are not successful, I suggest you modify your enclosure, allowing your villager to enter it more efficiently and to prevent the tarantula from entering.
That’s all there to it in catching tarantulas with ease in Animal Crossing New Horizons. If you are ever in a situation where there are full of them, I hope this method will help.
