-Scrapbook Description

Equipped Bug Net

The Bug Net is a Survival Item that can be used to catch insects, such as Bees, Butterflies, Mosquitos, and Fireflies. It requires 4 Twigs, 2 Silk, and 1 Rope to craft and a Science Machine to prototype.

It is an important tool for Honey making, as one require Bees for crafting a Bee Box, and Butterflies for planting Flowers around the Bee Box. It's also required to catch Fireflies for a Miner Hat or Pumpkin Lantern. One can also collect Killer Bees or Mosquitos, a safer alternative than trying to kill them with a weapon. Captured hostile insects can then be murdered to get their drops, or they can be weaponized, by either releasing them near other Mobs or placing them in chests (including Chester), to target Mobs that break the chests (or kill Chester). The murder feature is even more useful as Wortox, allowing him to, in short, extend his soul limit.
