The Internet Is Going Crazy Over This Spider Catcher

Share this with the arachnophobes in your life...

Did you know there are 781 spider species confirmed in British Columbia?

So for all you Vancouver Island arachnophobes… this one’s for you… ok, probably mostly for me 😉

“My Critter Catcher” has been making online videos for at least 4 years… but since media picked up on it… one of it’s videos, and it’s patented product has gone viral… earning 61M+ views and more than 800K shares.

“Many people regard the presence of insects such as spiders inside a building as a nuisance. However, many such people do not wish to kill the insect and would prefer to have a convenient and simple way of disposing of the insect without killing it…” – Tony Allen, Inventor, My Critter Catcher

Instead of killing the spider (check out the video above, the thing can handle some monsters!), it’s no-kill design allows you catch and release creepy crawlers… Perhaps best of all, you don’t even need to get close, as it’s on a 25.5 inch-long stick…

Reports say Tony was inspired to come up with the product because his son was afraid of spiders.

High 5’s Tony… we know there are more than a few people on Vancouver Island who’ve been startled by the size of spiders we can get here… (again, maybe only me…)

Do you squash or catch & release? ⤵️
