What are golden bugs you might ask? They are simply something to collect, and it is quite worth your while too! You get anywhere from 50 to 150 rupees every time you bring in a bug. For your first bug, you get a 600 rupee wallet. If you bring all 24 bugs, you get a 1000 rupee wallet. Goto Agitha's little shop which is the east-most house on the southern road. Talk to her and she will explain all about the bugs.
