Ethical spider catcher

£ 12.00


The spider catcher is gentle enough to catch spiders, craneflies, butterflies and moths without hurting their delicate legs or wings.

It is 65cm long and perfect for reaching bugs hiding on ceilings and tucked into awkward corners.

Controlled by a trigger handle, the unbreakable nylon bristles surround the insect and hold it securely yet gently, for release elsewhere.

No batteries required.
