The Brown Cicada is one of various breeds of Cicada which can be encountering in the Animal Crossing series which constantly appear during the mid-late summer season annually.


[edit] How to Catch

Like the cautionary rule which applies to bugs who are attracted to flowers, when the Brown Cicada is encountered resting upon any tree planted in your Town(as this is the only situation in which you’ll see them in the wild outdoors), you must stalk them slowly and carefully and ensure that you’re not too close or too far away from the unaware bug as slapping your Net anywhere but overtop of your target will inevitably scare it off.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Brown Cicada:

I caught a brown cicada! These guys are everywhere!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a brown cicada! I hope it's not afraid-a!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Ah, hoo, the brown cicada. The call of this creature is said to sound like hot oil sputtering, eh wot? I'm rather not sure that hearing the sound of deep-frying on a hot summer night is a pleasant thing...

[edit] Real Life

The Brown Cicada is native to New Zealand and are commonly hated by many farmers worldwide since they have a tendency to eat all of their crops. Overlooking this fact, they are otherwise harmless and make a distinct sound during evening hours similar to crickets or grasshoppers.
