never have to fear a spider again!
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
Awesome device !
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 way to catch a spider
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
Softly softly catchy spider!
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
I like the fact I've not seen a spider since I purchased this, must be working! ;@)
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.
Cure for arachophobia
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.
Spiders...ha ha ha
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!.
The only way I can remove spiders and daddylonglegs
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.
should be good
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.
Should have got one sooner!
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!
works really well
this is a great prezi for those that hate getting close to spiders - its well made and works well - recommended
Brilliant just what I wanted ! & fast delivery thank you
So where to start with this product... BRILLIANT. Does exactly what it says. I have a massive fear of spiders and the spider catcher is great due to the length of the handle I can get the spiders without getting too close, the bristles aren't too hard that they injure the spider. Best £10 I've spent. Have recommended this product to my family and friends.
Brilliant gadget for someone who doesn't like spiders but feels guilty squashing them! Great price too.
Fear no spideers!
I was very impressed with the quality of the spider catcher. Its a good size to give safe 'distance' between me and the spider! Nice gentle brush to hold the creature to then put it safely back outside. Really good item. Thanks.
brought this as a present for the girlfriend as she cant handle picking up spiders but doesnt like to kill and this was just the thing for when im not here to take them outside
Great gift for those with arachnophobia! or wife and kids who wont go near them?
Bought to replace broken one. Has saved the situation more than once. Good product. So pleased have bought a second one for my daughter-in-law.
Number One Household Gadget for Spider Haters!
This is seriously one of the best products I own. I am petrified by spiders even the tiny little ones, but with this bad boy gadget I feel like I can do anything! It is so easy to use and I know that plenty of my friends are impressed with it. I even bought it for some of my friends for their Christmas present as I know they will all get use out of it especially in the spider season! The Spider Catcher doesn't just catch spiders either, you can get moths and any other bug that is around your house! My husband also loves the fact now that I don't have to scream and get him out of bed every evening! It also prevents you from marking your walls with blood and juice, it is clean and practical! I would seriously recommend this product to everyone.
Great gift for my boyfriend who is very scared of spiders. Makes him feel like a hero when he catches them.
Looks good and well packaged, Xmas gift, so cannot review fully
Spiders stand no chance!
Perfect for getting rid without getting too close!
Fantastic! This really does work I have to date caught 2 spiders a wasp and a daddy longlegs with my spider catcher just love it.
What a great Humane piece of kit to move Spider out of the house and into the garden. Great price good service and a quick delivery
Great item I have purchased to date 4 of these. Does exactly what it states on the pacakaging
I hate spiders but don't like to kill anything if it can be helped. Now I am able to deal with the critters myself. Have disposed of a couple running round in the bath which wasn't easy as they were very lively and I think I need more practice on releasing the trigger quickly. Haven't yet had to use it on a big one on the floor but will have more confidence as I will be a fair distance away and I know that it works. The practice spider is a good idea though it makes me shiver just to look at it. Have left it on the work surface to try and get accustomed to the sight which will hopefully make me less afraid.
Spider Catcher is a great idea, no longer shall I be heading for the spare room every time I catch sight of a spider! It features a nice long arm, so you don't have to get too near and the fake spider you get with it is particularly fun to give people a fright (my sense of humour is a little dry). Thanks, this is a must have for an anti-spider family! No harm was done.
Help is at hand for all spiderphobes!
The Spider Catcher is a really handy gadget with a long handle that helps with those hard to reach places. You can catch any uninvited guests and release them without having to touch them - great.
With my new Spider Catcher I no longer have to call for my husband to remove large spiders from the house. I am full of confidence and bravery thanks to this excellent gadget and my husband can doze off in his chair without fear of being disturbed!
