Most of the bugs also appear during the daylight hours, except for the Atlas Moth and Giant Water Beetle. However, players who are trying to farm for tarantulas may also find themselves catching quite a few Giant Water Beetles. Fleas can be a bit trickier to catch. Players will need to look out for an itchy, flea-infested villager.
