Players need to wield a butterfly net to catch butterflies.

A Ruby harvest is a butterfly that players can capture with the Hunter skill at level 15 or above[1].

Players can find ruby harvests at the woodland area just south of the Piscatoris Fishing Colony. They must wield a butterfly net and have at least one butterfly jar in their inventory to catch them (one jar is needed for each butterfly they wish to keep). All of these items are available for purchase in hunter stores, for example the shop in Yanille.

With level 80 Hunter and 75 Agility, the player can catch ruby harvests with their bare hands. It may take several attempts to catch one, and the player will follow the butterfly with a jumping animation until it is caught. Doing this gives 300 Hunter experience and 50 Agility experience. However, the player will release the butterfly after it is caught, so this means that the butterfly cannot be kept.

A good technique to capture them is to click one to begin hunting, then right clicking another. This way, you already have your next target without having to search, allowing you to hunt faster.

A common strategy is to set up some bird snares while hunting ruby harvests, increasing the maximum exp gain a player may get.

After catching a ruby harvest, players can release it (via a right-click option) upon another player in a multi-combat area to increase the other player's attack level.
