Works as advertised


No more "YIKES!"

I received this at just the perfect time. One hour after opening and playing around with My Critter Catcher I opened my back door and a huge spider scuttled right on in. Normally I would have had my husband go after it but with the long handle on my new toy I was going to conquer this little monster. This is everything as described. I was easily able to operate My Critter Catcher and it gently, but quickly, closes in around the spider. I was able to carry it out to the edge of the yard and release in the bush line. I thank you and my husband thanks you for creating a much needed item around our house.


Works Great

I have a lot of woods around my house. I have been able to catch and release all sorts of critters. I have even caught a couple of flies sitting on the ceiling. I would not have been able to reach them without the catcher. We also get baby snakes in the house. This was SO MUCH EASIER than me trying to catch them with my hands. Everything gets released back outside!


Very Clever, Works Well

We have used this several times now and it has not failed to secure the insect and allow humane release back into the environment. We've even been able to capture and release the occasional fly. Just a well designed and well executed product.


Works Perfectly!!

Am giving the Critter Catcher to my daughter as part of her birthday present! I have two of my own--upstairs and down, and they do a super job. Especially spiders--but I've picked up centipedes and taken them, unharmed, to be released outside. Thanks for a super contraption!!


bug catcher

I bought 2 of these. One for inside & one for outside--they look like they will work really well. The problem? Haven't seen anything to use it on., which is really unusual. It's two feet long but still too short for me-- I DO NOT want to be that close to a spider But then that just me.

This is an amazing critter catcher. I bought two of these items so I can keep one at each end of the house. We live in San Antonio and we do have lots of critters roaming around. Spiders and scorpions are now caught by ME instead of me running through the house calling for my husband to eliminate the critter. It works beautifully!!!! Excellent item to keep within reach. Five star for sure.

Great Product

I wish I could tell you more about this product, but I have not had a single insect in the house since it arrived. It seems to be well made, and it looks like it will work just fine once I get the opportunity.


An elegant solution to a vexing problem

8/4/2016 by Jeanne

I don't like stomping on spiders, and some of them are very fast - getting away and hiding. I want to know where they are. Keeping one of these within reach prevents their escape. I got two. One for each bathroom. They work well. I appreciate the practice spider that comes with the product. The shipping package is inadequate. The box arrived bent and torn in half. Both grabbers have a bend in the handle. They still function perfectly, so I am not unhappy.

The My Critter Catcher Story

The tool for spider lovers and haters alike.

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.
