I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I’m cool with spiders and other insects in my home. And you don’t have to be either; this is a safe anti-creepy crawly space. They are gross, and they do not pay rent! However, the idea of mercilessly getting rid of spiders by throwing a shoe from three rooms away is…not it.
Well, TikTok came through with the best and easiest way to get rid of spiders and other insects. It’s called My Critter Catcher and I’m obsessed with it. Basically, it’s an extended arm with soft bristles that surround and enclose the spider, rendering it unable to escape.
And before you ask: Yes, it is humane. No spiders will be harmed with My Critter Catcher and they will be safely returned to their outdoor homes!
To pick up insects, simply do the following: Squeeze the handle so the bristles open, position the open bristles over the insect, and release the handle so the bristles close. To release the insect outside, just squeeze the handle again so the bristles re-open.
Not only is it humane, but it’s also 100% eco-friendly and chemical-free since it’s literally just a tool that you can use over and over and over again. It’s kind of like those dinosaur grabbers that everyone had when they were kids.
If you’re feeling frisky, the My Critter Catcher also works on roaches, scorpions, flies, crickets, cicadas, stink bugs, millipedes, centipedes, wasps, yellow jackets, bees, moths and everything your head can imagine and fear.
Oh, and it comes in pink! Specifically a Barbie pink, which makes it even better.
Other than being able to reach spiders in out-of-reach spots, the spider catcher means there is no squashing of guts. You will not have to go run and grab a paper towel or a sneaker, squash it and then clean up the mess afterward.
