Every new bug coming to ‘Animal Crossing New Horizons’ this September

A new month can only mean one thing for Animal Crossing New Horizons fans – new bugs are coming this September! Now that the month is officially here, more bugs are creeping inside Animal Crossing islands.

However, most of the bugs for this month are returning critters from earlier in the year. This is great news for new and old players who have missed a couple of bugs since they started. It’s the best time to complete their Critterpedias with old and new Animal Crossing bugs.

Here are every bug obtainable for September in Animal Crossing New Horizons:

Animal Crossing September bugs

Ground Bugs


Crickets will start appearing inside Animal Crossing New Horizons islands from 5 PM to 8 AM.

Bell Cricket

Bell Crickets also appear on the ground similar to the Cricket. They can be seen all over the island from 5 PM to 8 AM.

Bugs on trees

Violin Beetle

The Violin Beetle can be caught all day. They usually appear on tree stumps, so leave a few cut down trees to be able to spawn them.

Critters hiding on rocks


Pillbugs make their return to Animal Crossing New Horizons. Players can find them by hitting rocks with their shovels. Players must make sure to catch them quickly since they can fly off after revealing themselves. They are available every day from 11 PM to 4 PM.


Centipedes spawn from 4 PM to 11 PM. Similar to the Pillbug, these bugs can be found hiding under rocks so players must make sure to hit or destroy one.


Bugs flying around

Common Butterfly

These critters are commonly seen flying around the island where there are flowers. They can be caught between 4 AM to 7 PM every day.

Yellow Butterfly

These bugs are hard to miss. They spawn from 4 AM to 7 PM daily.

Monarch Butterfly

This rare butterfly spawns from 4 AM to 5 AM. They can be easily spotted since they stand out from normal butterflies.

Red Dragonfly

Red Dragonflies are available in the game from 8 AM to 7 PM. They are easy to spot since they have a red body but are difficult to catch because of their quick movement.
