How to Make a Scorpion Farm on a Mystery Island


In Animal Crossing New Horizons, it's scorpion season in the Northern Hemisphere, and these nasty tiny pests are everywhere. However, the 8,000 ACNH Bells retail price makes growing them worthwhile.

Scorpions can be found between the hours of 7 p.m. and 4 a.m. from May to October (November to April for the Southern Hemisphere). Because scorpions breed in flat, open regions, a well-decorated island is unlikely to yield many scorpions.

You can visit a scorpion mystery island via Dodo Airlines, but you can also create your own! It takes some effort, but you'll be rolling in scorpions in no time. This article will show you how to create a scorpion island farm on your own.

Go to Mystery Island

You must prepare before departing for a mysterious island. Before you leave for the airport, check out the list below for activities to do.

 • Remove everything from your inventory except your shovel, net, and ax.

 • Check to see if your shovel and net are still durable.

 • Buy Nook Miles Tickets to visit a few different islands.

A DIY scorpion island will take up space in your inventory and require solid tools. It's fine if you can't produce any extra shovels or nets. On the beach of every mystery island, there are palm trees. Cutting them down will provide you with enough materials to make a flimsy shovel and net, as well as the opportunity to buy some tools from Wilbur.

Bamboo Island

You should ideally be on a bamboo island. It's alright if you don't get to one with your initial ticket. We'll talk about converting some of the other mysterious islands into a scorpion farm later. Let's look at bamboo islands for the time being.

Clear Island

You've arrived on a bamboo island, which is densely covered in plants, flowers, and bamboo. Everything must be removed in order to turn this lovely island into a scorpion farm. Below is a checklist of all the actions that must be completed before scorpions begin to spawn in large numbers.

 • Chop down every bamboo tree and dig out their stump

 • Remove every flower (by picking, not digging them up)

 • Pick every weed

 • Destroy any rocks (you'll need to eat some fruit to do this)

 • Dig up any fossils or bamboo shoots in the ground

There will be no scorpions in the beach area, so feel free to throw anything here. You can also eat fruits to help dig up bamboo trees and replant them on the beach. Make the island as desolate as possible. Scorpions may still be able to breed in the presence of flowers and weeds, but they can also hide in these areas. To avoid any unnecessary scorpion bites, it's best to be cautious and remove everything.

Building The Farm

If the island is devoid of vegetation, scorpions will appear. You should set up a safe zone before you start catching them. If you are bitten by a scorpion, you will pass out and wake up next to Wilbu.

All you have to do to avoid being bitten is dig holes in a small, enclosed area. Excavate a space for you to stand in, leaving the center clean. Take a look at the image above for some inspiration! Scorpions (and Tarantulas!) cannot jump over holes, but you can catch them if you stand near the edge. Additionally, scorpions that spawn inside can be trapped and safely captured in this space. This approach can also be used to raise tarantulas.

Other Islands

You might not be able to visit a bamboo mystery island because there are various distinct sorts of mystery islands. Fortunately, several of these additional islands can also be reached using this approach. In general, you'll take the same basic steps.

Keep in mind that some islands are one-of-a-kind and will only spawn specific objects and creatures. Because these don't generate scorpions, you won't be able to establish this farm if you come across one. The following islands are scorpion-free:

 • Hardwood Tree Island

 • Curly River Island

 • Rugged Tree Island

You should now have a good understanding of how to set up a scorpion farm on a mysterious island! It's not difficult, but it does necessitate some elbow grease. Stock up on scorpions, which can be purchased for 8,000 bells each. Flick will buy them for 12,000 bells if he comes to your island. Consider how much money you'll make if you have a large inventory of them.
