My mom has 1 of these and I just loved it as I despise bugs in the house. So glad I now have 1 of my own! I even bought 1 for our condo up north.

We can't live without this in our house! We got an infestation of stink bugs in our house last year and this was great for picking them up and getting rid of them. Also the occasional spider. Works Great!More > < Less

We live in the ‘woods’ and bugs are no stranger to us now. For some reason my husband has gone on a no-kill kick, not wanting to take the life of even a spider. We’ve been getting a ton of wasps (must have a nest somewhere inside?!). This critter catcher works like a charm every time!! He loves it! He walks them out our patio door and sets them free!! Although the same darn wasp is probably just flying back in, the first chance he gets!! If bugs are an issue in your house - do yourself a favor and order one of these!More > < Less

About My Critter Catcher

A safe distance

Whether you’re deathly afraid of crawly insects or an avid believer in their right to live, this handheld bug catcher is for you.

Squeeze the handle to open the bristles, release to grasp the bug, and squeeze again to free it—somewhere outside, we presume. The firm outer bristles help grip larger bugs (beetles, spiders, and even scorpions). Inside, the soft nylon bristles keep even smaller bugs safe.

With the long handle, you’ll enjoy a comfortable 25-inch distance from the critter. And that length also lends some leeway to grab insects in hard-to-reach spots.

Tony Allen designed My Critter Catcher for his afraid-of-spiders son. Because spiders are helpful predators who get rid of other pests, Tony wanted a non-harmful way to catch and release.

This invention lets you declare “long live the bugs” and “keep that thing away from me” in one combined sweep.
