The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley

Collectibles - Beetles

Much like butterflies, you can see the beetles crawling along the ground. Some are also incredibly rare and thus have high prices on their little heads. They can then be put in a terrarium from your inventory (where they appear once caught) or sold to Langraab Insdustries Science Facility. A list of the beetles in The Sims 3 and their value is below:

Cockroach: 1 Simoleon
Ladybug: 10 Simoleons
Japanese Beetle: 15 Simoleons
Water Beetle: 30 Simoleons
Light Beetle: 40 Simoleons
Rhino Beetle: 90 Simoleons
Stag Beetle: 175 Simoleons
Spotted Beetle: 400 Simoleons
Trilobite Beetle: 750 Simoleons
Rainbow Beetle: 1,400 Simoleons

SimHenge is a great place to find collectibles

You can find the Rainbow Beetle in the land surrounding Llama Memorial Staidium. If you can wade through the legions of other beetles that inhabit it, the patch of land to the east of Pleasant Rest Graveyard, across the road, also sports the Rainbow Beetle.

The Trilobite can be found in the same spot, but you can also catch it on the beach to the south of town, to the east of the patio area.

The Spotted Beetle can be found near Pleasant Rest like the others, but in addition to this, between the houses on the small plots of land directly north of City Hall.

Simhenge also has the rainbow beetle.

The Trilobyte Beetle can also be found on the eastern beach.

I'm a bit confused by the compass points, as you can turn around on the map! Is it the big main beach?
