Nevertheless, to catch these critters, you must have smoke bombs in their Inventory and have a high rarity belt equipped to the character, like the Standard, Fine, or Exquisite Belts. Likewise, certain consumable items, like the Honey Lure and Smoke Candle, may also help lure insects for a limited time.

  • Golden Glory Bee: When harvesting wooden logs from medium to large trees in Kilima Village during the morning and afternoon, this bumbling bee will have a chance of spawning in the vicinity.
  • Hairy Millipede: Found in the forests and open fields between the Flooded Steps and the Statue Garden any time of the day.
  • Leafstalker Mantis: Akin to its name, the Leafstalker Mantis will likely spawn if farming Dari Cloves and Sweet Leaf along the areas between the Flooded Steps and the Statue Garden any time of the day.
  • Princess Ladybug: Named after a popular fairytale, this royal bug is seen all day along the coast of Kilima Village from the Whispering Banks to Gillyfin Cove.

The bugs listed above will drop Silk Thread when caught using a smoke bomb, which the recipe for smoke bombs can be purchased from Auni. Depending on the rarity, rare bugs like the Bahari Glowbug can drop a maximum of seven Silk Threads, while a maximum of 14 Silk Threads can be farmed from Epic rarity bugs.

Silk is required for two specific quests, including Badruu Blues, used in crafting a lute for Badruu. Another use for Silk Thread farmed from these bugs is to bring them back to your housing plot and place it on the Fabric Loom, which will produce Silk, which the recipe can be purchased from Tish.

Five Silk Threads are required to make one Silk fabric, which can be utilized in crafting various equipment pieces, furniture, and decor items. But if you’re in a hurry to get some Silk for a quest or crafting, you can buy Silk directly from Tish for 145 Gold per piece.
