This is a great tool


I ordered this item not for moving spiders from inside to outside but to pick up dead bugs (spiders, crickets, large wood roaches) and dispose of them. It makes it so I don't have to pick them up nor sweep into dustpan, which gives me the creeps...Great Product!!More > < Less


Everyone should have one of these


This thing is never far out of reach in my house. I went from a nice custom home that had a few spiders to a mouse infested fixer upper and this critter catcher never failed. In fact, when I had to grab some mice scampering across the floor, I though for certain it wouldn’t be able to contain them. It did! I got the mice safely outside without a scratch. This has worked for so many different types of bugs and now mice that I’m confident of its safe and effective use on anything I’d rather catch and release than kill.....I wonder if it will catch fish? Perhaps I’ll take it on my next boating excursion. Two thumbs up guys....it’s the best gift on the list now.More > < Less


Love Love Love


I bought this for my daughter, who lives next to a National Forest. You can imagine the critters who visit her house! She said that EVERYONE needs to have one of these Critter Catchers!
The only problem is grabbing a vinegaroon! It's almost too big for this size Critter Catcher, though she managed to nab it eventually.
I am sending one to my other daughter, also!

Catches all kinds of bugs everywhere! You can either put them in the toilet or let them go outside. Either way they're GONE w/out you having to get near them!!!!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.
