The Bug Net is a Survival Item that can be used to catch insects, such as Bees, Butterflies, Mosquitos, and Fireflies. It requires 4 Twigs, 2 Silk, and 1 Rope to craft and a Science Machine to prototype.
It is an important tool for Honey making, as players require Bees for crafting a Bee Box, and Butterflies for planting Flowers around the Bee Box. It's also required to catch Fireflies for a Miner Hat or Pumpkin Lantern. Players can also collect Killer Bees or Mosquitos, a safer alternative than trying to kill them with a weapon. Captured hostile insects can then be murdered to get their drops, or they can be weaponized, by either releasing them near other Mobs or placing them in chests (including Chester), to target Mobs that break the chests (or kill Chester).

Bugs[edit | edit source]
- During daytime, hovering the mouse pointer over Fireflies with the Bug Net equipped will not give the 'Catch' prompt, but pressing the spacebar while standing next to them will catch the Fireflies.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the old science system, the Bug Net crafting cost was 30 Research Points.
