This mod is Base Game Compatible. Enhanced by Outdoor Retreat, Seasons, and Eco Lifestyle.
The Bug Life Mod brings your gardens to life in The Sims 4.
Depending on the region, weather, eco conditions, and time of day, your lot will bustle and buzz with bugs. Maybe you Like bugs, and have no problem swatting them away, but if you get bugged out, just call Pest Control.
Don’s Dead Bug will dispatch a friendly exterminator to remove any pests around your lot and perform preventative spraying to keep them at bay. They’ll even take care of those nasty flies around your crops.

This mod automatically spawns insects introduced with Outdoor Retreat like ants, ladybugs, bees and locusts around any lot your Sim travels to.
It will also spawn the new pond effects introduced in the Cottage Living patch including mosquitos, dragonflies, and fireflies, however due to their footprint they are currently not directly interactable or collectable like the Retreat insects.
Sims will autonomously react to bugs depending on their preference and proximity to them. Sims without a preference will not have any specific effects to keep those features opt-in.
Bugs tend to stick around plants, ponds, picnic areas, trash, and smelly gifts from your pets – but like real life they may appear in random spots too. They will only appear within the active lot’s bounds.
Put that Citronella candle from Backyard Stuff to use! Bugs will avoid areas with incense, candles, and fire.
Sims who Dislike bugs will get uncomfortable if they hear noisy bugs and will have a hard time staying near them if they can see them. Sims who Like bugs can be inspired by the buzzz of nature and have no problem swatting away insects for others.
For a flat fee, your Sims can rid their lot of bugs by calling Pest Control. Don’s Dead Bug will remove any bugs from your lot and perform preventative spraying to keep the bugs away for about a week. They’ll also take care of your crops that are infested.
You can opt any lot out of the bug system by adding the Bug Free Zone lot trait. Bugs will automatically be disabled for apartments and while visiting Sixam, Magic Realm, Batuu, and the Acting Studio.
Your pets will interact autonomously with bugs depending on their traits, or you can instruct them to chase bugs away if you use a pet control mod.
They don’t care how many eyes or legs you have, they’ll talk to you anyway!
If you have Outdoor Retreat, all bugs will be collectable like those in Granite Falls.
