Product Description

Product Description

When dealing with arachnids, remember the first rule of engagement:: never let them see you're scared. Standing on your sofa or screaming for help may make you feel better, but it will not solve the problem. It will only enliven the creature causing it to run into an awkward corner of the room. If this happens then, quite frankly, a glass and a piece of paper is useless. Time to turn to the Spider Catcher. At around 65cm (25") in length, and activated by a trigger handle, the Spider Catcher has two sets of bristles at its furthermost end. These bristles gently and effectively grab and hold the creature, keeping it a safe distance from you, whilst you transport it safely outside. Now that's what I call a good catch.

Manufacturer's Description

Tony Allen came up with the idea for the Spider Catcher after spending years chasing spiders with a hoover or rolled up newspaper for his young son who was terrified of them. Not wanting to harm the spiders and conscious of peoples fear of spiders, Tony came up with a way to harmlessly remove spiders and other household pests. The Spider Catcher keeps you at a comfortable distance when you pick up and transport the spider or insect. The Spider Catcher is about 65cm long. The average arm length is 65cm, so you can estimate your body being about 1.3m (4 foot) from the Spider. It is long enough to reach ceilings and awkward places like in corners. On a recent visit to Ireland, the Prince of Wales was given a present of the Spider Catcher. The Prince was so impressed with the environmentally friendly product that he asked his secretary at Clarence House to send a letter praising the invention and congratulating Tony on his idea. The Spider Catcher is also gentle to insects. It was tested on hundreds of spiders and it never harmed a single insect; it is gentle enough to catch butterflies without causing any damage to their delicate wings. People don't want to kill or harm insects if it's not necessary. Therefore there is a feel good factor when using The Spider Catcher that you have removed a spider or insect without causing harm. But you don't have to use it to catch spiders, it can be used on a variety of insects including butterflies, moths etc. The Spider Catcher is also convenient for collecting dead insects from window sills (even dead spiders are scary!), picking up goldfish and collecting mayfly for fishing. The Spider Catcher makes a perfect gift for people afraid of spiders and its so easy to use. A unique invention- awarded the Geneva Gold Medal with Distinction.

This product review started out with the greatest of intentions, but slowly reduces itself into the most pointless nonsensical drivel imaginable. For that, I sincerely apologise.

This product is good, but not great. Firstly, when using it, you never seem quite far enough away. This however may simply be my level of arachnophobia, and not the fault of the device, which granted, is a decent length. Even the next room at times feels too close. I have about a 50% success rate with this product. In my experience, it's all about where the spider is. If it is on a flat piece of wall, great, it works every time. If however it is at the meeting point of two walls, or worse, the corner up by the ceiling, it's considerably harder. When I have failed to catch the spider, it has almost always dropped straight to the ground, so keep this in mind and prepare for this eventuality with a fall back plan. On one occasion, I failed to grasp the little blighter properly and it somehow managed to begin crawling up the outside of the bristles toward me. Needless to say I suffered some form of black out/mild cardiac event, and when I came to the spider was nowhere to be seen.

Those worried about the strength of the bristles can rest easy. I have successfully caught one of the big boys (we'll call him Barry).

Barry was up in the very corner of the ceiling, so his size was actually an advantage on this occasion. As always I had a backup plan in case of failure - due to Barry's size, this was to sleep that night wrapped up in a mosquito net and put the house on the market the following morning. Whilst I realised that prospective buyers may be put off by having Barry as a housemate (who by that time would surely have got settled and claimed the master suite), I saw no other option.

As soon as I started using this I realised that whenever I'd seen a spider in the past, the panic wasn't just linked to discovering one but the fact that I'd have to get close to dispose of it.

This device wonderfully alleviates the problem. It's long enough so the spiders generally don't see you coming, and they stay frozen within its grip until you release the mechanism.

A small piece of advice - if using it with small spiders just open the device up a minuscule amount over the spider and then close - seems to work better this way. The great thing is that its use isn't just limited to spiders: I've managed to dispose of flies and moths successfully with it as well.

I have been a life-long arachnaphobe and have tried various repellents and catchers. This is the only one that works! I can stay a decent distance away from the offending spider and once they are caught they cannot move, allowing you to remove them without worrying that they are going to scuttle at you. The only thing I would say is that the catcher is better on big spiders than tiddlers as the little ones seem harder to hold on to.

This is a great item, it enables you to catch spiders and release them without harming them. Just place the opened brush over the arachnid, pull the trigger to close the brush, take it outside, depress the trigger which opens the brush and the little fellow is released - simple, effective, and so much better than searching around the house for something to remove them with. It can catch them from floors, ceilings and walls. I was a bit concerned that the spiders might be damaged but I've checked all mine on release and all have been fine with no damage to legs. It even comes with a plastic spider to practice with so you can become a master at it before use . . . . and I've no doubt that the plastic spider will also be used it to scare family and friends with! Thanks to everyone that has the compassion to remove these fascinating little creatures without harming them, after all, they're just trying to survive like all of us. This way everyone wins !

Update: Still working perfectly as of Feb 2016
