I'm trying to get rid of a lion ant because I hear its sound in the background. But, I can't find it. I tap every single spot on the ground, still nothing. Is there a glitch to this app.

Hi Fairlady,

I didn't come across any glitches during my time with the game and I played it extensively for around a week. Hopefully your problem will resolve itself.

Hi Loopykid,

If you tap the pile button in the bottom-right of the screen and then tap on the pile you want to remove, you should see a purple box appear. Simply click the purple box and the pile will be stored in your inventory.

Hope that helps,
Anthony

Hi Brb,

If you tap the pile button in the bottom-right of the screen you should see a small number near the top of your pile icon (this means you have one or more in your inventory). Simply tap the pile and place it in the garden - you shouldn't be charged.

Hi Alenine,

I'm afraid I can't help you with that problem, as I'm not experiencing it myself. If it's a common issue I'm sure Glu will eventually release a update to address it.

Sorry I can't be more helpful,
Anthony

Wondering where these free random gold coins keep coming from? I got 208 when I opened the game one day. The other day! I got 280-something. I'm not complaining...just curious. And they really need to expand. My village is a bit crowded. :-). Love it, though.

I think Glu added a daily coin bonus in one of the recent updates.

The coins should be added to your total automatically.

Hi! I have a question: up in the top left corner where you can see what level you're on and the red ant head, you can also see how many ants and bees you have by taping the ant head... It says I have 7/10 ants... I don't know what that means. I can count 10 ants, why does it say 7?

Kaso boxer, I guess that's what I did too. I never thought about I could have mover the wrong stone. But to the best of my memory it wouldn't let me move the big rock blocking the passage. It would only let me move the small one. Please if you find out how to move it please let me know. Thanks

The first task you do removes the small stone, the second task you do removes the larger stone to the other side of the village. You have to remove the stone before you can get a beetle house.

I seriously can't figure out how to undo the stone thing. I put it in the middle of the floor because I didn't know what to do with it... and now I can't do anything else until i remove the right stone. Don't know how to buy it again? All it says is "complete quests!" What freakin quest?! Im getting irritated. I just want beetles. Haha. :)

You need to remove one of those centre stones first before the stone that blocks the passage. I did a hack (doesn't work for apple) and just paid with coin to complete the friends missions as none of my Facebook friends play. But I did roughly 12 missions in like level 23 and then a mission comes up saying you can remove the blocked passage. I've now unlocked the whole garden so sad :(

With the rock/stone tasks, you can't put the stone in the wrong place, so don't panic. It's been a while since I was at that level, but my memory of it is that you buy the stone, then you still have to complete more of the tasks/quests before the new area becomes available. These are the jobs listed on the right of the screen.
For me, the beetle didn't become available until I was in the level 30 something's - probably because I was at a higher level before they introduced it? I still had to complete stacks of those tasks on the right hand side before the beetle became available.
I would also like to know how the butterfly works too - I can't figure out how it earns me anything either....?? Anyone with insight here it would be appreciated.
If you are playing on iPhone, moving the phone date/time forward let's you complete tasks faster and watch the gold coin videos more frequently too.

after u breed a butterfly, the acorn or xp(or both) that u earn from each task will change based on the butterfly u breed. For example, if u breed the best-morning glory-royal, then u have a butterfly which gives u 14% more xp! the numbers will change automatically in the task menu.

I cant get rid of work piles to buy new flowers or piles. There's nothing to let you do this, you said it ca be done as said below, I've tried but I cant see anything that lets you do this.. Hope you can help.. JLB67

(Hi Loopykid,
If you tap the pile button in the bottom-right of the screen and then tap on the pile you want to remove, you should see a purple box appear. Simply click the purple box and the pile will be stored in your inventory.
Hope that helps,
