Works really great! Comes with a cover for the bristles, a hook to hang it on and a plastic spider to practice with! Fun to play with and use! Save the spiders, they're useful against other pests.
Pretty well made and seems to work as advertised, though I havn't tried it on a real spider yet (works well on the plastic spider included!). Look foraward to using it on the real thing when the warmer weather arrives and they all wake up!
I’ve bought the spider catcher for my daughter, who’s so afraid of spiders, she threw away her new handbag because there was a spider walking on it! The spider catcher is bigger than expected, but it really works! The pole is long enough to catch spiders, and other unwanted visitors, without coming to near and the bristles hold the spider long enough to bring it to a safe place. And it helps my daughter to save money. She doesn’t have to throw away things with a spider on it anymore.
Excellent product. I already had one which was in great demand by my grandson (3 years) whenever he visited. Always keen to do a spider hunt. Bought more to give him one of his own. Good for people who like to keep spiders at arms length, and because of the design can reach to the ceiling and into corners where spiders like to hide. Also can reach through windows to deposit the catch outside and see them drop. The 2nd extra catcher went to daughter in new flat (hope she doesn't need to use it). Catcher will also deal with butterflies without harming them. Recommend highly.
amazing how many people are scared of spiders and won't go near them. This device works and catches them without having to get too near; you can them be kind and put them outside. Easy to use and really works without any danger of them falling onto the floor and scarpering away. I have one on both floors of my house for just those emergencies.
What a great idea my wife dislikes spiders and this means she can catch them at arms length whilst I'm at wor
Bought my daughters one each of these spider catchers as a kind of jokey present and they ended the star of Christmas. Not only did my grandaughters play with them all Christmas instead of all the expensive pressies we bought them they also saved my daughters life (her dramatic words) when she found a spider in her home. Absolutely brilliant!!!
This gadget is a good idea. My husband doesn't like spiders and is allergic to bees and wasp stings so he can deal with these himself now! We tried it out and it seems to work just fine.
If you hate spiders but you don't want to hurt them then this is a must have. I have had mine for over a year and I wouldn't be without it. Very satisfying picking up massive spiders... they never get away with this. Recommend for every household.
Bought this as a stocking filler for my parents due to a serious spider issue in our area. Now we can move them outside quickly and safely! Useful and a fun present, I'd definitely recommend.
I bought this as a bit of a gadgety gimmick for my mum as she is terrified of all arachnids and is quite often tearing across her house like an exocet missile for a vessel of varying description to trap her quarry before calling me to escort it from the premises. Tired of her phone calls I bought her this and thus far SUCCESS! She has used it quite a few times on different creepy crawlies and has no bother relocating all manner of wildlife into the garden. Great gimmick that works!
brilliant and perfect gift for my friend who is terrified of spiders
Easy to use at a safe distance from the spider. My mum has arthritic hands but is able to use the device with ease.
I've bought this as part of a Christmas gift for my daughter as she is terrified of spiders. I though it would be good fun.
Works really well on spiders and other creepy crawlies. I like the wee hook so that it can be hung in the cupboard. No running around wondering where it is. If anything, I might have liked an even longer handle to keep me even further away from the big blighters.
Very competitive price and it does exactly what it says on the pack!!
Only used it once so far on a very large fast spider. Very humane, simple, effective product, which does exactly what it meant to do - brilliant!
Product is great for catching spiders and very easy to use. Still yet to convince my girlfriend that the spider won't escape but it is better than having to catch them by hand! Doesn't harm the spiders. Need to clean every time really because the webs get stuck to it!
Fantastic gadget to get rid of creepy crawlies without having to get up close and personal. Have also bought one as a gift.
Quite a number of spiders have now been discommoded and turfed out of my house. This year there are a whole lot of false widow spiders and, as these are new to Ireland, I am freaking out over them. Now however, with my spider catcher they can be deposited outside safely :-)
Have purchased this before it does what it says it will. Now bought some for others.
I already have two of these for myself and am so pleased with them that I have now bought another as a gift for an arachnophobic friend. I highly recommend this.
Brilliant product makes catching spiders much easier.quick delivery aswell.
This item is amazing for catching spiders. I am petrified of them but have been able to use this to catch spiders. I have tried many other products but this is the ultimate spider catcher. It has a long handle making it easy to reach everywhere without having to get near the intended victim! It doesn't harm the spider so you can take it into the harden to release it. The spider can't move in the fibers used to trap it so it is an absolute lifesaver of a product and I would recommend it for anyone, not just arachnophobes!
For anyone petrified of spiders this is the ideal present, couldn't have a happier daughter, does exactly what it says on the tin!1
Whilst I personally do not have an aversion to catching spiders and taking them outside, I bought this in case people come around to my place and *do* have such a phobia or aversion, and I have to say I'm really impressed with it ! It's long enough for you to be able to feel like you are sufficiently distanced from your prey so as to not be put at risk, if you're the squeamish type, and the bristles are firm and robust, so you should find they hold your little arachnid buddy firmly, and ***hopefully*** don't do him any harm. The device couldn't be simpler to operate - it has a gun-grip with a trigger, so you just squeeze the trigger to open the bristles, approach, GENTLY release the trigger, and ensnare your target, then walk him outside, and pull the trigger again to release him back into the wilds ! One word of advice ? Keep these for catching spiders. I got so excited when I opened mine that I ran around the house trying to catch other objects like peanuts, chads, paperclips, and I've knocked so many things over in my mad delight that I think the spiders have run off in terror !! Finally, for those of you that would like a bit of practice to get your feet wet as it were, the catcher comes with a black plastic spider for you to sneak up on, so you can't go wrong really.
Easily the best present a young child in the household received, no more looking under the bed for spiders!
Great little gadget to grab spiders from a distance and get rid of them without hurting them
Extremely good service, with prompt delivery and good value items
I had a big first time problem with you seems the address was not correct. The postie wouldn't deliver as he was at a different area but he did manage it in the end All parcels came well wrapped and very surprised in the calibre of each item not Chinese made. carole
Have used this very successfully and managed to relocate several scary hairy friends without worrying about trapping their legs or having to run for cover because they've evaded capture. It's worked in corners and ceilings and the length is just right. Instead of running away now, other family members rush to use the spider-catcher! Great!
A great stocking filler for my arachnophobia son
As the least arachnophobic member of our household I was the spider catcher general armed with my glass and piece of paper I was expected to trap, catch and liberate the eight legged invaders accompanied by my children's screams of horror. Since buying the spider catcher the screams are from the children complaining that it is their turn to catch and evict, not just spiders, any creepy crawly that ventures in from outside. Even my husband is prepared to have a go!
Catch the creepy spider from the luxury of your sofa, no need for a cup and paper to rid from your home
Well I can't really give it a higher score until I see it in action! Looks pretty sturdy lets just hope it keeps the spider contained otherwise we're in trouble :@\
Actual device is good, but took a very long time to be delivered, hence the lower rating
Handy gadget, not actually tried it on a real spider yet, but it picks small things up easily. Think for those with Arachnophobia the handle might need to be a bit longer, as it is only about 20" from the beast. I think it is a good buy for saying good bye spiders.
Bought this for a spider-scared friend, and they loved it. It has quite a reach, reacts quickly but is very strong. Great design and price.
Have had one of these before, children broke it, it still works, but you have to clip the handle together before using it, I wanted one to catch this pesky spider in the lounge and it's QUICK!! Got it on the day this catcher arrived!! I have only used it on straight walls/ windows/ floors so I can't comment on usability and accuracy in corners and crevasses I would say don't hesitate to buy one if you are not great buddies with creepy crawlies, catch them and dispose of out of the nearest window/door!! PS my lounge spider was released in the kitchen.....well, it was raining and dark and really quite cold! He didn't have a coat or any boots!.
Extremely useful devices for removing spiders and daddylonglegs, both of which I hate. I can't even bear to get close enough to use a jar and cardboard or big matchbox. Good not to have to kill them either, even if they are 'orrible. I already had 2 spider catchers, both getting a bit old and damaged. Good to hear how to repair them. Thought I would take advantage of the offer of 3 new ones, to keep them in stock for future years and to give to other people in need! I live in the country and some of our spiders are a bit too heavy for the bristles to grip. I find it's best to grab some spiders' web beforehand - gives better holding power.
This picked up the enclosed practice spider with no trouble and so I am sure it will work well when I see a real one. I wonder if the spiders have seen this as I have not seen one of them since it arrived!!
I bought this as a fun present for my arachnophobe younger sister. She loves it! She actually to it up to our mums house on boxing day to show her.
Fab product, would give it 6 stars if I could! I really hate spiders but this lets me catch them quickly and at arms length (even from usually hard to reach places) and then dispose of them - they cannot escape from the Catcher until you release it. No longer need to wait for someone else to do it for me. Brilliant.
If you have even the slightest fear of spiders this is an essential item. Easy to use and spiders are quickly and safely caught and disposed of without any fear. I only wish I had one years ago.
This was a spur of the moment buy but I can't believe I waited so long to get one - it's great! As someone who has a great dislike for creepy crawlies this is the perfect product and good value for money. It comes with a handy hook to make storing it easier and the cap for putting over the bristles is also useful. The only down-side I've experienced is that one of the bristles came out after only using it twice. They generally seem fairly sturdy though. I highly recommend it.
Will help the sister with her fear of spiders. Love this site
Great just the christmas gift I needed for my son inlaw .He is so scared of spiders if there is one in the bedroom he will not go to bed untill he has managed to splat it with his shoe.Then to pick it up needs ten tissues to pick it up.Your spider catcher will make his life perfect.It might even stop him screaming.Well he is a man.
Brought as a present therefore not used yet.
This is the second spider catcher that I have bought as a gift as the first one I gave to a friend went down very well. Not only is it a fun, cheap gift but definitely works too!
