   Hey there, My name's (like i would tell you) and I'm writing a 
bug-catching guide! This is my very first faq ever, so bare with me.
I apologize greatly for any grammar, punctuation, or spelling mistakes. 
Ever since I started I.M. I've gotten worse and worse at typing. I'm 
trying to correct myslef, but whatever. Oh ya, the title, I know it's
bad, get over it...lol. Okay enough with the Introduction that people 
probably won't even read....soooo...ON WITH THE FAQ! "Crowd cheers"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------       
                      Note to readers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  I have installed a searching system, that will DEFININTLY help.
    Just hold CTRL (Controll) and then press "F". This should 
      bring up a search engine that will/should assist.

1.                    Why catch bugs? 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
Why catch bugs? WHY CATCH BUGS!?!?! "Slaps the reader" Catching bugs had many
rewards, such as the "Golden Net". "Ha ha! I can see your eyes sparkling with
glee!" The Golden Net marks the skill of a true player. ...that and the 
golden fishing rod....BUT NO ONE CARES ABOUT FISH! Also you will get a little 
house decoration (A butterfly) on the side of your house. And the ability to go
up to your best friend and say..."Ha!!!! I got all the bugs!! NE NE NE-Ne NEEE!
Ha ha ha ha *cough* ha *cough*h.ugh..*cough*..he..hhhe...*falls over*"


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.                     What is bug catching?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                     It's when you catch a bug 


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.                   R E A D    T H I S    F I R S T !!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  I'm listing this in a way of "Months" each Month new Bugs and incects come 
out and other go away. This lists when, where, and how you can catch them. 
They also come out at different times, Dawn, Day-Morning, Day-Afternoon, 
Evening, Night-Early, and Night-late

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.                          F    A     Q
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Ok finally.......the faq. I will list the bugs that APPEAR in the Month, and 
percent chance that they appear. Anything that won't appear in that Month (0%)
I won't list, anything with no percent (%) is 0%. So read on!

5.                 Catching certain bugs, and special coditions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, ok, we all no it's hard to catch ALL the bugs? But why? It's because of 
those DUMB, STUPID Bagworms and spiders!!! Heres a list on "HOW" to catch all 
the really strange bugs.



Bee - There are 3 bee's Every day. They are in 3 seperate tree's in your town, 
when you shake one of the bee trees, bees will fall out, they will cycle 
around the tree 2 or 3 times, either the 2nd or 3rd (I fogot wich) time 
they fly around, swipe your net at them. 

Note: You need to stand behind the tree (Thanks Nintendo magazine)




Bagworm: These are annoying as English class. You can here them...but where 
are they? Why they're buried silly! dig and dig and dig in the acre you 
hear them in loudest, and they will eventualy crawl on out. Don't lose sight 
of them! Catch em' with your net!!!!

Note: I hate the Bagworm



Spider: Hairy, creepy, crawly, yup they're in Animal Crossing. Spiders are in 
Trees, Sometimesthey randomly fall out, with out you even doing anything, 
sometimes you have to shake a treefor them to fall on out, these are 
EXTREMELY hard to find, so you find one, 
YOU CATCH IT!!!!!!



Mole Cricket: Same as the Bagworm

Note: I hate the Bagworm



Snail: Snails appear on rocks, they are extremely rare, and they CAN get away 
from you! (Go figure)\


Pillbug: These are invisible. They are hiddin in rocks, you can tell wich rocks 
they are in, bywatching your villiagers stare 
at them. Just hit the rock and out pops a pillbug (Now visisble) Just catch 
it with your net.
