where do you find the insects that you collect?

The ones I've found have all been near the workshop. Insects only seem to come out when it's raining.

Definitely during rain only ... also appear out front near birdbath.

I've only ever seen insects in the back where the broken hose is.

to collect insects faster buy the tropical rain formula when the store has it in stock and change the weather, I also have an annoying neighbor who likes to build weather machines.

Whats up with the neighbor emailing my families all the time about whether (lol) his weather machine works? Are we supposed to do something or just ignore it?

Random events ... just like the other collectibles ... so not every rain brings them out.

Nothing to do ... except look for insects once his machine starts the rain.

Just to say that I've found that my window boxes have to be watered at the time as well. I've never had an insect when they haven't been in bloom.

I've noticed that most of the insects are more camouflaged than the coins. I've found quite a few on and near the tree to the left of the shed near the top left of the scene. I've also found several near the tree and ground near the workshop at the far left of the scene along with the locations previously mentioned in the posts. Also more insects tend to show up after all the coins are collected and/or into the third generation on.
Yep...they only come out when it's raining or immediately after the rain...but just because it rains doesn't mean you'll see an insect.

interesting I will have to watch for that. In my 3 sets of families I have yet to find the dragonfly or the bug on the far left that has the shape of a housefly. Everything else has shown up in one family or another. All have completed their coins. Only one family is beginning the 3rd generation now so I am hoping the tip above that the occurrences increase is on the money!

Ive had all twigs etc coins and completed the photograph for ages now carried out all repairs and am on 3rd generation with very little trophies left to get and Im still missing 3 insects its getting really irritating - I wonder if there's a glitch or something, should probably have a look at the last day at works own forum site and see if theres anything on there if I find anything Ill post it here

the housefly JUST showed up - 3rd generation - and I would bet that it hasnt spawned before since it is fairly large and bright purple! It showed up just below the left side of the workshop.

My Family One hasn't gotten the waterproof tape to fix their hose and they have six bugs in their collection - and they've sold some online.
