How do you catch a Tarantula?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

How do you catch a Tarantula in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Aside from the Wasp, the Tarantula is another creature that will attack you when it can. The bite from a Tarantula will knock you out, and you'll wake up in front of your house.

So how do you catch one successfully? Tarantulas will immediately give chase once they see you, however they will stop once you hold a Net by pressing A. In order to catch a Tarantula, you need to slowly walk towards it while hodling your net and pressing A.

Each time the Tarantula raises its legs, stop moving. Wait for the legs to go down and slowly walk towards it, always remember to stop once the legs are raised. Once you are in a good position for catching, let go of A to catch the Tarantula.
