Autumn is fast creeping around the corner and it’s also the season when our eight-legged friends come out to play.

For some, spiders can be a burden and a cause for fear and chasing them around the house with a broom isn’t the best option for all parties involved.

The Zero In Spider Catcher features 68cm long plastic handle so customers won’t have to go near the eight-legged arachnid.

It also has soft bristles which make for easy captures of spiders, moths, daddy-long -legs and butterflies without harming them.

Once you capture the insect, you can release the rod outside and set the creature free.
