Garden Grove is one of the first areas you see in Bugsnax, and it’s filled with critters.

While you can catch most of them in the beginning, you’ll have to progress in the story and return to get every Bugsnax to appear. On your first visit, you’ll only see Bungers, Fryders, and Shishkabugs, with the rest appearing later.

You’ll also need the Trip Shot and the Lunchpad to catch all of the Bugsnax with ease, so you’ll definitely need to return after getting those.

Bunger (all day): Hit a Bunger with Ketchup, causing another Bunger to run up to it and stun it so you can catch it with the net. You may need to use Ketchup to lure another Bunger to the same area first.

Fryder (all day): Place the Snak Trap below the Fryder and hit the device with Ketchup to lure the Fryder in.

Shishkabug (all day): Place the Snak Trap where the Shishkabug is standing. After it hides in a bush, hit the bush with Ketchup to make a nearby Bunger scare it out of the bush and into the trap.

Sweetiefly (4 a.m. - 4 p.m.): Place the Lunchpad and aim it at the Sweetiefly. Place the Snak Trap on top of the Lunchpad and fire it at the Sweetiefly when it is resting.

White Strabby (all day): Carefully place the Snak Trap along a White Strabby’s path. If it hides in a nearby bush, back up and wait for it to come back out.

Dr Sodie (all day): Place the Snak Trap on the Dr Sodie’s path.

Weenyworm (all day): Place the Snak Trap on the Weenyworm’s path.

Cobhopper (all day): Fire the Trip Shot across the Cobhopper’s path. Grab the Cobhopper with the net once it’s stunned.

Crispy Snakpod (all day): Use the net to grab it, since it won’t run away. If it’s out of reach, use the Snak Grappler.
