----------------- 1)- Getting Started/Hints and Tips -----------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Golden bugs. The weird little glowy things you'll see every once in a 
while actually serve a purpose. Go figure. 

Anyway, catching bugs is simple. Walk up to them and press A when 
prompted. Easy. 

Tips:
Bugs glow a bright gold. This makes them very easy to spot at night, 
so it would be wise to catch the critters while you are hunting for 
Poes. 

You will also hear a tingling sound when near a bug, so stay sharp and 
turn your speakers up.

The Gale Boomerang can grab a bug and bring it right to you. You wont 
catch it immediately, but it can be easier then hiking across a field 
and chasing it around for a while. 

There are 24 bugs total. One of which you cant get to until extremely 
late in the game. So there really isn't a reason to go looking for 
these bugs until the time comes that you can catch the final bug... 
unless you need money for something.

Some bugs require certain items to reach/capture them. These items 
will be listed in the section below.

Bugs can move around. They don't stay in one place like most 
everything else. As such, I can only list a general area as to where 
they are. Search the area thoroughly to find your prize.

The Male and Female are normally within the same map as each other. 
There is only one exception: the Dragonfly.

Secret: some of the bugs have the tri-force mark on them, leading some 
to think they are the "Goddess bugs"... No idea, but they may facture 
into the story line of the next Zelda game... or it could just be a 
neat little easter egg the developers put in (the later seems much 
more likely).

--------------------------- 3)- Agitha -------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Agitha. The reason you run around Hyrule with bugs in your pocket.

Agitha's house is located in the southeast section of Castle Town. 
Enter Castle Town from the east and take the path down (south). Follow 
it until it turns west. Agitha's house is the first door on the left 
(north).

Agitha will give you 50 rupees for each bug you give her. If you 
complete a pair (you have given here the Male version, and are now 
giving here the Female, or vise-versa) you will receive 100 rupees for 
that bug. This make a total of 1800 rupees.

But wait, there's more. For the first bug you give her, she will give 
you the Big Wallet (which holds up to 600 rupees). If you complete her 
collection with all 24 bugs, she will give you the Giants Wallet 
(which holds up to 1000 rupees).

You have to give here the bugs one at a time... which is slow and 
annoying. But it lets you pick and choose how much money you receive 
at any one time.

Why does she want all these bugs? For a tea party of course. 
*cough*Aliceinwonderland*cough* She claims to be royalty... that seems 
unlikely though. In any case, she gives us money for catching bugs, 
who are we to argue? All hail the bug queen (at least until she goes 
broke)!
