The Sims 4: Insects Collection
Finding Rare Insects in Granite Falls
Dragon Dragonfly, Will-o-the-Wisp, Dust Spirits, and Rainbow Fireflies
The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack allows you to attempt to complete the Insects Collection via visits to Granite Falls National Park. While there, you will find crawling and flying insects are able to be found, although some may only appear at certain times of day. The collection can be quite difficult to complete due to the number of common insects and the time-of-day factor. Completing the Insects Collection will earn your Sim a plaque.

Tips for Catching Bugs
While searching for Insects, keep in mind that there are two types: crawling and flying. The best way to look for them is to keep the camera near a Sim's eye level so that you can better see around the many trees of Granite Falls. Do not pause the game while seeking them, because it is easier when you notice the movements. If you're missing an insect found only during day/night, then do something else to pass time unless you're collecting them to earn money.

Dust Spirits, like Will-o-the-Wisp above, are only found at Night
This should be of help to determine what insects are missing from your collection. Special Thanks to SkellySpades on TheSims.com Forum for helping to compile this information. See notes below as some of this info on times and where to find the bugs will be refined as our understanding grows.

*Note on Times
We'll refine these when we find more information about the specific hours insects are available. For now, this should at least help you sort out what ones are available only at night and during the day.
**Note on Catching Bugs
While we may find an insect in one place, it may not be there when you visit in your game. Re-visiting an area on another day, you may find that insect. None of these are exclusive to one area, and you may find bugs in places other than those listed.
