|A swarm of bugs.|
Harpie Bug Swarms are a mid-level slayer monster that require a Slayer level of 33 to kill. Harpie bug swarms should be an easy task for most mid-level players. Harpie bug swarms are very accurate, and will often hit for up to 6 damage; thus, it is advisable to bring food appropriate for the player's level: many may find lobsters suitable for the task. Defence levels beginning roughly in the late 40s or early 50s or higher will prove helpful in defending against this enemy. To kill this monster, players need to wield a lit bug lantern (buyable from any slayer master), which requires a Firemaking level of 33 to light (unlit will not work).
It is recommended to bring Nature Runes while slaying this monster since it has many drops that can be alched for profit and it helps have longer runs.
