Dinkum - Bug Catching Guide

Dinkum - Bug Catching Guide

calendar_todayPosted on 9th August 2022

In Dinkum, you can find bugs all over your Island that you capture using your Bug Catcher Net. As your Island moves through the Seasons, different species of Bugs will start appearing and you can submit them to your Museum for Permit Points and glory!

Like Fishing, each time you capture a Bug you gain EXP towards your Bug Catching Level. Unlike other Professions, you don't have to upgrade your Bug Net to capture all the species.

You can unlock the Museum for your Bugs by getting Theodore to join your Island.

Tips and Tricks for finding Bugs

Catching Butterflies

Bug Catching is pretty simple in Dinkum and all you need is a Bug Net, which can be purchased from John for 1,100 Dinks.

You'll find Bugs all over your Island; you just need to aim your Bug Net on the tile the bug is on and it will be caught! Bugs do not stack in your Inventory, so they can quite quickly clog up your Inventory.

As the time of day and the seasons change, different bugs will spawn. You'll need to complete a full year on your Island in order to catch all the bugs.

You can see Bugs from quite far away, so if you ever unlock the Helicopter, it is great for scouting large areas for the bugs you really need.
