I'very been able to pick up spiders and scorpions with this critter catcher and get them out of the house. It's fabulous. No more squished messes to pick up or risk being stung. Love it!

I love this tool! I purchased one for my daughter and myself! It's extremely useful for all of those creepy crawlers and jumpers! Works well on crickets.

I have to say that I was skeptical (and so was my husband) but it is absolutely awesome. I don't have to kill the bugs and I also don't have to touch them. I plan on getting this for my mother and sister for Christmas.


Works amazingly well!!

Our daughter is arachnophobic. So far I've caught and released a moth, large spider and even a fly. Was doubtful it would work on the fly, but it did. Highly recommend.


Love it!

This contraption is awesome. I plan to get one for everyone as a gift. I never kill bugs in my house, but don't really want to pick them up either, so I used to find myself with a paper towel trying not to squish the poor thing, and would end up having to catch them a few times. This thing is actually fun! Well, what grabber isn't fun. haha! I can only imagine what the bug must be thinking as it is released out of this thing, and walking off. ;)


Great fun Christmas gifts

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.
