Bug Catching may be one of the few underutilized Skills in Palia, but this Skill can come in handy when tackling challenging quests, completing tasks, or simply helping a Villager in need. The latter is the case as Delaila has a bugging issue destroying the crops, which players can learn about in her Friendship quest, The Cricket Problem.

As gardening is their primary source of income for the Daiya family, an annoying bug is creating more issues for the family, and Delaila needs the players’ help. Get rid of the bugs and save the crops from further destruction by completing Delaila’s The Cricket Problem Friendship quest in Palia.

How To Complete The Cricket Problem Friendship Quest In Palia?

The Cricket Problem is Delaila’s Friendship Level 2 quest, which can begin once players have spoken to her. She can typically be found at Zeki’s General Store, Ormuu’s Horn Inn, or back at the family farm in Leafhopper Hills to accept the quest.

She’ll reveal that crickets have been running amok at their farm, eating their crops and causing plenty of headaches for her and Badruu. As they’ve tried everything to eliminate the cricket problem hampering their crops, players can step in to help her with the issue by catching Common Field Crickets that can be found throughout Leafhopper Hills.

Using any Smoke Bomb, they’ll need to catch five crickets to resolve their problems before returning to Delaila to turn in the quest. Extremely relieved to hear that the cricket problem has been resolved, players can receive 20 Renown, an Apple Pie, and five jars of Apple Jam and improve their Friendship with her upon the quest’s completion.

Palia is currently available via the Epic Games Store and in Open Beta for PC, as players can install the game launcher detailed in this guide. The game is now available to download for Nintendo Switch as of 14th December 2023.
