September is just around the corner, which means a variety of new bugs and fish will soon begin appearing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Unfortunately, that also means that certain species are about to leave the game, making this your last chance to catch them for the time being.

With summer winding down, a ton of different beetles and cicadas will soon disappear for Northern Hemisphere players, while Southern Hemisphere players only have a few more hours to catch dung beetles and Rajah Brooke’s Birdwings. Below you can see all the bugs and fish that are leaving Animal Crossing: New Horizons today, August 31, so catch them while you can.

Only a handful of fish are leaving Northern Hemisphere islands in September. Most are small fries that will only net you a few hundred bells from Timmy and Tommy, but you’ll definitely want to reel in Giant Snakeheads and Napoleonfish while you can. The former can be found in ponds and will fetch 5,500 bells apiece, while the latter live in the ocean and are worth 10,000, making them some of the most valuable fish in the game.

Cicadas and beetles have been a common sight during the summer, but a variety of them are leaving the game in September. The beetles in particular typically fetch a pretty penny at Nook’s Cranny, and many won’t be back until next July, so you’ll want to catch as many as you can while they’re still around. You can read more in our complete bugs guide.

Southern Hemisphere

Fish

Fish Location/Size Time Price
Blowfish Sea 3 9 PM – 4 AM 5,000
Pond Smelt River 2 All day 400

Only two fish are leaving in September for Southern Hemisphere players: the blowfish and the pond smelt. Of the two, only the blowfish is of any real value; it sells for 5,000 bells, a pretty nice chunk of change.

Bugs

Bug Location Time Price
Damselfly Flying All day 500
Dung Beetle Snowballs All day 3,000
Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing Flying near flowers 8 AM – 5 PM 2,500

As with fish, only a few bugs are leaving Southern Hemisphere islands next month. Dung beetles are the most valuable; they’ll net you 3,000 bells apiece at Nook’s Cranny. They’re also some of the easiest bugs to spot; you’ll see them rolling snowballs around your island. The Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing is leaving the game as well and is worth 2,500 bells, but it’ll return again in October, so you’ll have another chance to catch it soon.
