Got his for my squimish daughter

I was ordering the kids explorer kit for my grandson when I saw this. My bold take charge daughter is terrified of bugs so I got her this as a joke. She has already used it and loves it.

Bought it as a gag gift for my wife, ended up being one of her favorite Christmas presents. My granddaughter thinks it is great too!

I am not a big bug fan - this picks up spiders and we even picked up a frog on our patio. Works great! Ordered one for our grab bag Christmas gift!


Cool idea

I bought this for my son who hates spiders, now he can catch and release them without involving me. Going to get a second one for my wife. Lol


It works?

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.

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.
