How to avoid getting bitten by Scorpions/Tarantulas in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Recently, a Redditor on r/AnimalCrossing revealed an age-old trick that players have used to avoid scorpions/tarantulas on the Island. Many fans replied stating that they knew about it. However, many of them also mentioned that they had no clue about such a trick as well. These scorpions and tarantulas are present on the Island a lot, and bites from them aren’t at all.

Usually, players on Animal Crossing: New Horizons will use nets to catch them. However, if they don’t have any plans to catch them, then it’s best to not bring out the net at all. Without it, players can remain as close as they want to them, and they wouldn’t mind at all. Eventually, they will move away and despawn, and once that happens, fans don’t have to worry about scorpion/tarantula stings.
