5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gadget
We had one of these previously, and then we attacked an insect too hard and broke the handle!!! Couldn't find one anywhere. So thanks, its fab for getting loads of those pesky creepy things that run fast...so you have the pleasure of dumping them back in the garden to rejoin the 'circle of life'.
Our saviour. Great gadget though, definitely recommend it.

I bought this as a replacement for one I have had for years from Bettaware. I paid 6.97 which supposedly included "free" delivery but I see that it is now advertised at a lower price and delivery is not included. I assumed the higher price was because it had a "long reach" compared to cheaper ones I had looked at as it was described as a "Long Reach Spider and Insect...

This review is from: Great Ideas Long Reach Spider and Insect Catcher - Catches Bugs Alive For Easy Disposal - Humane, Does Not Kill - Sliding Lid Closes To Trap Spiders
I bought this as a replacement for one I have had for years from Bettaware. I paid 6.97 which supposedly included "free" delivery but I see that it is now advertised at a lower price and delivery is not included. I assumed the higher price was because it had a "long reach" compared to cheaper ones I had looked at as it was described as a "Long Reach Spider and Insect Catcher" and a review said it kept bugs at "arms reach". Well the one I received was very short, much shorter than my Bettaware one and certainly couldn't be described as keeping bugs at arms reach. Luckily I hadn't yet thrown my old one away and was able to use the arm from it to attach to the new one rather than go to the trouble of sending it back, but anyone considering buying this should be aware that it is considerably shorter than expected and is also flimsier than my previous one.

Also another point, bearing in mind that people purchasing this item are generally not lovers of insects, you might want to reconsider the packaging as the horrible picture I saw of the massive spider when opening the box made me recoil and I am not that bothered by insects - someone with a real phobia could possibly have a heart attack or at least would be quite shaken and upset I'm sure. Surely it's not necessary to illustrate the packaging in this way?

I would recommend that anyone considering buying one of these should check out the Bettaware version instead as theirs is longer, sturdier and cheaper - and get someone else to open the box if you are arachnaphobic!

A tremendous gadget that is so efficient. Wonderful for bee catching but just needs a lttle practice and great care when rotating it to allow the shutter to fall to encase the creature. Be careful to avoid trapping wings and legs
Every home should have one!!!

This review is from: Great Ideas Long Reach Spider and Insect Catcher - Catches Bugs Alive For Easy Disposal - Humane, Does Not Kill - Sliding Lid Closes To Trap Spiders
If like me and my family you are insect scared BUT don't like to harm them this long reach catcher is a must. Once the insect is caught they can be safely released outdoors completely unharmed. You can even trap spiders on the ceiling without fear of them falling on your head. A very useful tool to own.

This review is from: Great Ideas Long Reach Spider and Insect Catcher - Catches Bugs Alive For Easy Disposal - Humane, Does Not Kill - Sliding Lid Closes To Trap Spiders
cnt say this dnt work because it does catch those annoying scary insects like spider and fly, the only problem is when trying to release the little thing, sometime they like to stand on the "release door" and if u r as clumsy as me, u would actually ends up killing the poor things, and part of it's body would be left on the trap door and make it harder to clean...
