In Bugsnax, Simmering Springs is the first area you unlock after getting to Snaxburg.

The beachy area is where you’ll find several NPCs, as well as pick up the Buggy Ball tool, which is great for luring Bugsnax away from their homes and into traps.

Like many of the other areas, you won’t be able to grab all of the Bugsnax you see on your first visit. More will appear after you progress further in the story, and you will need the Lunchpad to catch some of the critters here.

Kweeble (all day): Place the Snak Trap on the Kweeble’s path. If it hides in a nearby bush, move away from the bush and wait for it to come out and into the trap.

Crapple (all day): Place the Snak Trap in the Crabble’s path.

Pineantula (all day): Hit the Pineantula with Chocolate Sauce to lure a Crapple to it. The Crapple will carry the Pineantula away, stunning it so you can catch it with the net.

Orange Peelbug (all day): Set up the Snak Trap outside of the log or cave that the Orange Peelbug is hiding in. Use the Buggy Ball to push the Orange Peelbug out and into the trap.

Razzby (all day): Place the Snap Trap on the Razzby’s path. If it hides in a nearby bush, you can move away from the bush and wait for it to come out and into the trap. If it retreats into a cave, you can push it out using the Buggy Ball.

Green Grapeskeeto (4 p.m. - 4 a.m.): Cover a nearby Bugsnak with Chocolate Sauce. The Green Grapeskeeto will go down to feed it, engorging itself. Scoop it up with your net.

Snaquiri (all day): Place the Lunchpad nearby and aim it at the Snaquiri. Put the Snak Trap on top of the Lunchpad and fire it at the Snaquiri.

Tropicabug (all day): Carefully place the Snak Trap on the Tropicabug’s path without being seen. If it sees you, it will hide indefinitely. Leave the area and return to lure it out of a bush.

Lovely Sweetiefly (4 a.m. - 4 p.m.): Use the net to pick up the Lovely Sweetiefly while it rests.

Baja Tacroach (6 p.m. - 4 a.m.): Set up the Snak Trap near the Baja Tacroaches carefully.

Waffstackarak (4 a.m. - 11 a.m.): Ring the triangle by Wiggle’s old camp during the slotted time. Bait the two Waffstackaraks into hitting each other and net them when they’re stunned.

Grumpy 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.
