(If your inventory has 40 spaces)

How To Make A Scorpion Island

By removing all trees, flowers, and stones from a mystery island, you can increase the spawn rate of scorpions. However, you'll still have 3-4 species of insects appear, and you also need to scatter away any Wharf Roaches that might be lurking around.

Steps To Make Scorpion Island

1Remove all trees and flowers
2Dig out all tree stumps with a shovel
3Break all rocks
4Fill all holes you've made
5Catch Giant water bugs
Check Out All Mystery Island Types!

Why Catch Giant Water Bugs?

In order to increase the chance to encounter scorpions, you need to catch Giant Water Bugs spawning in the pond and release them. Also note that Giant Water Bugs won't spawn when it's raining! This makes it a lot easier to create a scorpion island.

How To Catch A Scorpion

Approach from Behind

Approach from Behind

Do not approach a Scorpion from its front becase it will immediately be aware of you. Creep up to it from behind to close the distance without catching its attention.

Will Attack When it Sees Your Net

If you have your Net out, the Scorpion will attack you when it becomes aware of you. Remember that it won't attack unless you are holding your net.

Has A Very Fast Attack

Has Very Fast Attack

If the Scorpion is about to attack, it will raise its pincers & tail. It will then lunge in to attack your character!

So during June, it’s impossible to make a scorpion island given the new bugs coming out that can’t be scared away?

James 10

On June 1st, fireflies and mosquitos make an appearance in the NH, and can't be scared away. Usually I can convert spiral Island into a scorpion ground but not anymore.

Can it be caught in the rain?

They should also point out that scorpion, tarantula, bagworm, and spider (possibly dung beetle) do not come out when you have visitors in your town. So that can be a positive if you're trying to get night bugs and keep getting attacked!

Autogatos 7

You can use the standard method for tarantulas (hold A, approach slowly, stop when front legs/pinchers are up, continue when they are down).

I can’t confirm whether other methods like digging holes works. Tbh I never found that super effective for tarantulas either.
