There are a host of vendors to interact with every day in Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch, some of whom arrive on schedule, like Daisy Mae on Sundays. Others come at random intervals. If you are looking to make cash with all the bugs you catch, keep an eye out for Flick.
This red lizard has a chance to randomly appear on your island in the morning and will stick around until the next day. Flick is one of the game’s most interesting vendors since he offers players two unique features when they visit: you can sell him bugs for 1.5x their normal value and you can commission him to make bug models for you.
If the punk rock lizard is on your island, then here’s what you need to know about Flick.
How to sell bugs to Flick
Unlike Blathers, the museum curator who dislikes bugs, Flick is in love with them.
In fact, Flick will buy any bug you can sell to them for 1.5x their normal sale value. For instance, if you look at our Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s bug price guide, you’ll see that the Paper Kite Butterfly sells for 1,000 Bells at Nook’s Cranny. Flick’s markup will net you 1,500 Bells instead.
If you’re looking to maximize profits from a process like tarantula farming and are willing to wait on Flick, you could sell the creepy crawlies for 12,000 Bells instead of 8,000.
How to commission Flick for art
Selling your bugs for a slightly higher price isn’t the only service Flick offers.
If you hand over three of any bug, you can commission Flick to create a custom model of that bug for free. Just simply hand over any three bugs of the same type to Flick and they’ll mail you a model of that insect the next day.
You can only commission one model at a time from Flick, so if there’s a certain bug you want immortalized in your home, it’s best to save them up for one of Flick’s visits.

An extra pair of Joy-Cons comes in handy for local multiplayer gaming. They come in a variety of color combinations.
