How to catch Red Dragonfly in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You can only catch Red Dragonfly in Animal Crossing: New Horizons during the months of September and October, making it quite a limited, albeit not that rare, bug. To help you out, here are the key details you need to know, including the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Red Dragonfly price.
- When: 8am - 7pm, September - October
- Where: Flying
- Price: 180 bells
As the details above state, Red Dragonfly will only appear between 8am and 7pm in the months of September and October (March - April for southern hemispheres). That’s quite a limited timeframe (especially for those of us working) but this critter is pretty common, meaning you should be able to find one without much trouble if you get the chance to look. They aren’t too fast either, so a quick swipe of your net will add them to your critterpedia.

Sadly, while the Red Dragonfly is very pretty, it’s not worth much money at all. The Red Dragonfly price is just 180 bells, so we recommend grabbing one to give to Blathers’ museum, then moving on to bigger things. September also introduced the more valuable Mitten Crab and King Salmon, so be sure to snag them.
