Pretty sure Isabelle mentioned the bug off earlier in the month, and it's on the town notice board a week in advance.

I only found out it existed when I logged in at 7pm to find Flick (only his second time on my island since I bought the game), telling me "the June bug-off is over"... and I'm like the what is over?? And you can't even sell bugs to him. -_-

They should really tell you the day before in game. I would never in a million years have known I had to log in in the morning only today for this without looking it up online. Forcing you to research every possible before it happens to take part? Kind of messed up.

Pro tip: set out spoiled turnips in a few places. They spawn ants at a near 100% rate, and sometimes flies, too. Easiest way to get points. My best score was either 15 or 17 bugs caught using this strategy.

Flik's purchase rate is always 1.5x. Wasps sell for 2500 normally. Stored bugs can be sold to him during the event but won't count towards your points.
