How To Tame Aphids In Grounded

Aphids are small sap-eating insects in the Grounded game that live under the grass leaves and on the new flower’s buds. Till now we see an aphid as a meat meal in the game but in the “Shroom & Doom” update, you can now tame an aphid and make it your pet.

In this tutorial, you will also learn all about an Aphid, such as where to find it, how to tame it, and how to cook it to satisfy hunger.

How To Tame Aphids?

Tame an aphid isn’t an easy task because they are the shyest animals in the game. If you move close to them, they run away and climb on the grass leaves. So be careful when you try to tame them.

To tame an aphid, you need to collect some mushroom stacks and then search for an aphid near the crow bird location. However, Aphids are everywhere in the game, but you need to find a place where they are in the majority number. Due to their shy nature, a single Aphid can run away quickly, and then you won’t be able to locate it again. So try to locate an area where there are too many.

Step By Step: How To Tame An Aphid?

  • Firstly, search for an Aphid around places like Oaktree, Crow bird bathtub, and near the mysterious machine.
  • After locating an Aphid, you need to make some distance from him, otherwise, you will lose him.
  • Now make some Plant Slurry using plant fibers and sprigs
  • Now drop 2-3 Plant Slurry around him and then let them eat it.
  • When it eats some mushroom stacks slurry, you can now tame it and make it your pet.

Note: This guide also works for “Weevils” animals in the Grounded game.
