What You Can Do With Flick
Make A Bug Model
By bringing 3 of the same bug species to Flick, you can get a model of that bug. The model will be delivered via mail on the next day.
Sell Bugs To Flick
You can sell your bugs to Flick. Flick will pay you a lot more (x1.5) than you would get at Nook's Cranny. It can therefore be a good idea to save up your expensive bugs for when Flick comes!Check Out A Full List Of Bugs Here!

Sell Bugs To Flick After
You'll be able to sell the bugs you catch to Flick for more than their usual price. Given that the entry fee is only 500 Bells, you'll be able to make a hefty profit. This event goes on until 6pm, so make sure to do it over & over!Check Out A List Of Other Events Here

In exchange for catching bugs, Flick will reward you with points which you can spend to buy bug-related items! It seems that if you catch over 3 bugs, you'll get a bonus!
