And now for something completely different: ‘My Critter Catcher’ from The Grommet

Not a big fan insects, big or small?

In the garden, I don’t mind them, but indoors — get me a tissues and direct me to the nearest toilet.

The Grommet is selling “My Critter Catcher,” a long-handled insect grabber that allows you to catch and release insects with a comfortable distance.

Whether you’re deathly afraid of crawly insects or an avid believer in their right to live, this handheld bug catcher is a solution to catch bugs in a non-harmful way. 

Squeeze the handle to open the bristles, release to grasp the bug, and squeeze again to free it. The firm outer bristles help grip larger bugs. Inside, the soft nylon bristles keep even smaller bugs safe.

With the long handle, you’ll enjoy a comfortable 25-inch distance from the critter. And that length also lends some leeway to grab insects in hard-to-reach spots. Maker Tony Allen designed “My Critter Catcher” for his afraid-of-spiders son. Because spiders are helpful predators who get rid of other pests, Allen wanted a non-harmful way to catch and release.

The catcher sells for $16.95.
