If you want to own your own insects in Smalland, you’ll need to learn how to tame them. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to do.
Smalland: Survive the Wilds is a new survival game developed by Merge Games. In it, players are shrunk down to tiny insect-sized creatures called Smallfolk and must make their way through perilous situations and avoid ravenous giant insects.
However, pretty early on, the player also is granted the ability to tame insects in the game world. If you’re wondering how to get your pet Ladybug or Grasshopper, you’ve come to the right place.
How to Tame Insects in Smalland
To tame an insect in Smalland, players must craft a Treat and place it in their inventory. Then, find the insect you want to get that corresponds with the Treat and damage it to under half health before hitting the F key to tame it.
Insects in Smalland can be used as mounts to get to locations faster or help you carry items from one place to another.
Once the animal is Tamed, players can feed it by dropping a piece of food with the left CTRL key to restore its health and hitting the C key to perform different actions, including Mount, Use, Release, and Follow or Stay.
