Perfect Tool!


Have the Critter Catcher upstairs and downstairs--it has never failed me. I used to catch spiders and crickets in a paper cup--this catches them and doesn't hurt them so I can carry them outside and release them intact. Have given them to my children and grandchildren--they all use them.More > < Less


The best!


I use this for the occasional roach that I find in the restroom in the middle of the night..relocating them to watery doom! My daughter has used it to take spiders outside. Amazingly effective, highest rating possible!More > < Less


Use this frequently


Doesn't work so hot for small spiders but works great for stinkbugs, which is what I bought it for.


Fun bug catcher


So easy to work and it does an exceptional job of catching bugs (without harming them). Easy to set them free.


Great tool!


This is the perfect gift for someone who doesn't want creepy-crawlies in the house, but doesn't want to kill them either. It works exactly as described and it even comes with a plastic "practice" spider to grab! We had a lot of fun on Christmas Day after this gift was opened - everyone wanted to "practice"! Seriously though- it's a wonderful tool to own.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.
