Collectibles and Collecting: Beetles

First introduced in The Sims 2, Bug Collecting in The Sims 3 is split into two distinct disciplines: Beetles and Butterflies, and each includes specific types of varying rarity and value, giving the active collecting Sim a great challenge.  The following Beetles can be collected in the game:

Your Sims Beetles collection is diverse

Cerambyx (Common) $70 (France)
Cockroach (Common) Value: $1 (Your Town)
Japanese Beetle (Common) $15 (Your Town)
Ladybug (Common) $10 (Your Town)
Light Beetle (Uncommon) $50 (Your Town)
Rainbow Beetle (Extraordinarily Unusual) $1400 (Your Town)
Red Assassin Bug (Rare) $800 (China)
Rhinoceros Beetle (Uncommon) $100 (Your Town)
Scarab (Uncommon) $180 (Egypt)
Spotted Beetle (Rare) $500 (Your Town)
Stag Beetle (Uncommon) $210 (Your Town)
Trilobite Beetle (Rare) $750 (Your Town)
Water Beetle (Common) $30 (Your Town)

Note: While you can sell the Beetles you collect, if you drag one of them outside of your inventory in your house you automatically place them in a glass home that is certainly suitable for display and as it requires no ongoing effort or maintenance on the part of your Sims (the "pet" bugs do not have to be fed or watered or anything) it is certainly a great way to remember and show off the rarer of the captures you make!
