[edit] How to Catch

The Bell Cricket is an extremely easy catch to make, and needs almost no tips to do so. Simply find it, and catch it! It can be found jumping through the grass and can potentially elude you, so diligence must be practiced with your Net.

[edit] Player

This is what you player says when you catch an Bell Cricket:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught a bell cricket! I don't know the face...but the name sure rings a bell!"

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"スズムシだ! リン、リン! 小さな大三ユ―ジシヤン!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a bell cricket! The littlest musician!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a bell cricket! How many Bells is it worth?

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Their chirps are extremely high pitched.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

The frequency of their song is so high that it can't be transmitted over the phone.

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I actually find their voices quite soothing. On an autumn evening, when their cries fill the air... Delightful! Their appearance however, is not in the least bit engaging, and actually borders on repugnant. As for myself, I find them no better than cockroaches. Blech! Vile. Vile indeed. Truly, dirtily vile, eh wot?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The chirping of the bell crickets is interesting and even rather charming, wot! But the movement of their wings when they cry out... Blech! Gives me hives..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Bell crickets top my list of insects one should never look at directly... Such a vision of horror! A slick black body, long antennae, and foul wings that shake when it chirps! Blech! How can one be expected to abide such an odious monster?!

[edit] Trivia

  • This bug is also known as Bell-Ring Cricket.

[edit] Real Life

The Bell Cricket is referred to as 'Suzumushi' in Japan, which means Singing Cricket in Japanese. It is rumoured that each individual Suzumushi has a different chirping sound, even though they all sound the same. The Suzumushi is mainly kept as a pet in Japan in a bamboo cage.
