As with any Animal Crossing game, New Leaf has plenty of bees hiding in the trees waiting to sting you… or be caught! Check out this great video above by Valerie detailing how to easily catch bees in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Keep reading to learn more:
Shaking trees in Animal Crossing is always a good idea as you’ll usually find some furniture and spare bells but there’s always the risk of getting stung by bees. It’s a lot easier to catch them in New Leaf though, and it can even earn you a nice chunk of 15,000 Bells from selling all of the Bees and Bee Hives for the day.
Also, the reasoning behind running North is because when you equip your net, you’ll face towards the bees automatically increasing your chances of catching them. If you run a different direction, you’ll have to turn after equipping the net. Pretty smart, eh?
