New Fish and Bugs in July: Everything arriving and leaving this month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons • Eurogamer.net

July marks the arrival, and departure, of a range of new fish and bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Catching every fish and bug in New Horizons will not only help complete the Museum, but will unlock the DIY recipes for two of the Golden Tools.

The Critterpedia details when each creature appears on your island, but, to gain this information, you must first catch the creature in question. To help you out, this page explains exactly which fish and bugs arrive and vanish in July.

Animal Crossing fish and bugs leaving in July

There’s only so much room on your island in New Horizons, so, for more bugs and fish to arrive, some have to leave. You’ll want to ensure you’ve caught at least one of these creatures before they leave, because you’ll have to wait a couple of months for them to return.

Don’t worry too much if you do miss a fish or bug – they will return to your island eventually.

If you want to ensure that you don’t miss anyone though, then it’s a good idea to try catching these creatures closer to the beginning of the month. This will prevent the end-of-the-month bug or fish hunt rush.

Tadpoles are leaving at the end of July.

Our dedicated guides for both fish and bugs will also supply you with a host of bug hunting or fishing tips.

It should be noted that the following only applies to the northern hemisphere.

All Animal Crossing bugs leaving at the end of July:

Animal Crossing Bugs Months available Times available Location Bug Price
Honeybee March to July 8am to 5pm Flying around flowers 200

All Animal Crossing fish leaving at the end of July:
