Artwork of a player holding a net in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The net is a tool used to catch insects as well as arachnids and crustaceans, which can be found all around town. Catching and donating insects is required to complete the museum's collection. All insects that are caught with a net are recorded in the player's encyclopedia.

Usage[edit]

A player holding the net in the water

Using the net will cause it to swing in front of the player. If the net strikes an insect, the player will successfully catch it. Striking flowers will cause the petals to fly, though it does no actual damage to them. Striking a villager three times with a net will prompt an immediate reaction and make them angry or upset.

In Animal Crossing, Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori e+, New Leaf, and New Horizons, the player can hold the "A" button with a net to move very slowly, and when the button is released, they will swing the net.

More advanced versions of the net can also be obtained. The Silver Net and Golden Net are larger than the standard net, increasing their range and making it much easier to catch insects.

In New Horizons[edit]

Nets in New Horizons will break after a specific amount of uses. Making a successful catch with a net, whether that is an insect, one of Wisp's souls, a cherry-blossom petal, maple leaf, or snowflake, will reduce its durability. A net's durability is not reduced when swinging the net or failing to catch anything.
