I've used it twice already with spiders, hope it works as well on other insects.


No more crunch from killing bugs!

Love this little gadget, your hand doesn't have to get near the thing you're trying to remove from your home, and you can release it outside (or in the toilet) rather than getting bug guts on the wall/floor/ceilingMore > < Less

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.

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.
