Wondering where to look in order to catch this colorful bug? Just search for them on trees. Make sure to keep a net with you before you catch any bug because a surprise encounter with some wasps will get you stung. So, always keep your net equipped in such cases.

Once you spot a Rainbow Stag, grab your net and walk slowly towards it. If you move too fast, the bug might flee. Hence, slowly approach it and at the right moment, swing your net and catch it in your net. The following message will pop up after you successfully catch this bug – “Yes! I caught a rainbow stag! Its rainbow armor is so shiny!” Well, it’s shiny indeed.

The Rainbow Stag will sell for 6000 Bells so catching it will prove to be quite beneficial for players. You can either sell it to make some quick cash or donate it to Blathers’ Museum. Since the duration of its availability is not very short, you might end up catching many of these, giving you the opportunity to make a lot of Bells.
