is the area near the point (ex. Cage is general area around it no exact spot)

[All places mentioned are the places I had higest percent of capture of said 
Insect]

*   - I mostly caught them on Juraika but they can be caught really anywhere
**  - Caught Mostly at waterfalls and spring but have caught in maze area and 
      village
*** - Only caught 2 so far both in village so account may be different with 
      more game play

Suggested for catching Strong Insects/Hard to Find Insects


/compewtore\
*****************************************************************************
On Vedan, go to the Observation deck where you can see the moon very clearly  
Set a trap in the area with a Stella crystal. Chance of catching a CRESCENT 
BEETLE.
*****************************************************************************

/MrXero\
*****************************************************************************
Juraika
I found all these when you're just entering the Road to Burkaqua, which is 
close to the Swamp
- Big Staggy (2nd Trap)
- Lady Beetle (3rd Trap)
- Buzzelina (3rd Trap, used Primeval Beef)
- Stingbee (Same as above)
- Mantis (3rd Trap, Hard Candy)
- Slaying Mantis (Same as above)
- Super Mantis (Same as above)

Vedan
I found these on the Observation Deck, Spaceport next to old man and bench
- Hopper (2nd Trap, Stella Crystal)
- Butterfly Insector (3rd Trap, Stella Crystal)
- Dragonfly Insector (Same as above)

Zerard
Bazoo Beetle (Rosencaster Prison, 1st/2nd Trap? Ultra Spicy Pepper)
*****************************************************************************

/deity_shadow\
**********************************************************************
There are Orion Beetles on the star god alter in juraika, Trap I and 
III with bananas is what I used to get them
**********************************************************************

/Strategy Guide\
*****************************************************************************
1) On top of the Leo King's Altar on Juraika. Place a Insector Trap III on 
TOP of the altar itself, with a Ruby as bait. You will catch a Level 5 Faerie. 
Faeries heal all adjacent insectors.

2) On top of the Great Table in the ancient ruins on Rosa (after you fight 
Seed for the first time at the end of Chapter 7). I used an Insector Trap I 
with Primeval Beef as bait. You'll catch a Level 5 Big Staggy. It may take a 
couple of tries. Since Staggys appear to rule in the Insector fights, you 
can problably just farm up 4-5 of them

VI.(Feed)

----------------------------------------------------------
Battle Feed
Gives exp, matures Insectors and gives random stat boost 
as far as I've seen, or maybe it's resistance increases 
depending on the type of Insector it's fighting.
----------------------------------------------------------
Feed Formula
Allows two Insectors to mate, must be Adult stage. A new 
Insector in exchange for the two you're mating
----------------------------------------------------------

VII.(Breeding)

/Strategy Guide\
*************************************************************************
1. The new larva will match the family of the highest rank parent.
2. If both parents are the same rank then the male dominates.
3. If the dominant parent is rank 8 then the larva will always be rank 8
*************************************************************************

/kchendz\
*****************************************************************************
There are 8 ranks for every bug type, except for the unique bug, dark emperor
(?). You can get the strongest ranks of the basic bug through breeding. Note 
that I said basic, because I'm not sure how many unique bugs are out there. 
For example, bugs that people been wanting to catch through traps such as 
Pegasus, Poseidon, or Orion can all be obtained through breeding. 

You breed a female adult bug to another male adult bug, you get a new bug 
that is one rank higher than the higher ranking bug of the two mating bugs. 

For example: if you breed a rank 4 itshorse bug to a rank 2 mantis, your 
resulting bug will be a rank 5 itshorse.

You will never get a different breed of bug than the mating bugs. In another 
word, your new bug will always be in the same bug family(type) of the higher 
ranking mating bug. 

The basic stats (health, strength & defense) of the new bug will always be a 
little lower than the stronger one of two mating bugs. The best way to get 
to the highest rank of a bug is to mate it with a random lower level bug. 
What I mean by that is, you don't want to mate two high rank bugs.

For example, if you breed a rank 6 itshorse bug to a rank 5 mantis, you will 
end up with a rank 7 itshorse. BUT if you breed a rank 6 itshorse to a rank 
1 mantis, you will ALSO end up with a rank 7 itshorse. As you can see that 
it is better, cheaper and faster to breed the bug your want with a random 
low rank bug you catch out there. You can just go out there catch a random 
bug and feed it some fruits 5-7 times usually, and then mate it with the bug 
your want to raise to get a higher rank bug.

One thing I want to clarify is that I'm not 100% sure if mating a Rank 4 
with a Rank 3 will give you a Rank 7, but I'm pretty sure it won't. 

Another thing I want to point out is that, while the basic stats (health, 
strength & defense) of the new baby bug will not be higher than its parents 
when it was first born, but its resistance stats WILL be the minute it is
 born. 

I noticed that if you catch a new bug, if you're not sure if it is a high 
rank bug by its name, just look at its resistance stats. Higher rank bug 
will ALWAYS have higher minimum resistance stats than the lower rank one 
noticeably. For example, a rank 6+ bug usually have their resistance 
around 50 or higher compare to a rank 1 bug with resistances at 10-20.
