The Walking Stick is a bug that can appear on most trees, including Coconut Trees, which you can see in the image below. The toughest part of catching one of these is the short active hours during the day. It is only available in the early morning from 4 am to 8 am, or two hours in the afternoon from 5 pm to 7 pm. Your best bet is probably early in the morning due to the low competition. Unfortunately, not all of us can wake up that early, so the evening is a more realistic option.

There will be a lot of competition between this bug and beetles. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled and look for the Walking Stick on the sides of trees. The months of July through November is when you can find them in the Northern Hemisphere. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, add six months to that. One thing to note is this one only sells for 600 Bells, so it’s more of a bug you just want to pick up for your Critterpedia.
