This works beautifully!

To be honest, I'm not one of those "catch and release" people when it comes to bugs. My problem is high ceilings and taller walls and spiders and scorpions ending up at the very top. This Critter Catcher gives me the extra reach that I need to get these critters before they slide down behind the furniture never to be seen again. Scorpions have been plentiful this year and this tool works great to capture them and dispose of them.


great gadget

This works just like the description. It was a gift and my friend loves it.


Kindly Escort Insects Outdoors!

I try to never kill any insects or spiders that I find in the house. This tool is very gentle and helps me to reach my small visitors safely without climbing, and escort them back outdoors. I think it is wonderful, and it should be in every household!

Perfect. Bought as present for my daughter. She was so happy when caught her first spider using it and released outside


Works Like Magic!

I have a bug phobia - alive or dead I don't want to pick up the little critters. This amazing product allows me to scoop them up and redeposit them outside where they belong without ever having to touch them. I'm so glad that I bought it. It works perfectly and I highly recommend it.


Insect grabber

I bought 3 so I could give them as gifts. They are novel as well as useful. The plastic spider that came with the item is fun to use with the grabber.


It works!

Used it three times the first day. Spiders, camelback crickets (ugh), & a wasp. The wasp got away a few times. It was hard to get a good grip on it because it struggled so mightily, but I persevered and didn't get stung.

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!

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.
