This nifty plastic device from Germany is extremely clever and easy to use, and gently traps any temporarily motionless insect on a wall or other flat surface. It’s perfect for dealing with those more harmless insects (moths, beetles, and many breeds of spiders) we may just want to remove from our homes without actually harming them. The red thumb-operated lever on the handle slides open a thin plastic gate on the clear plastic head. Place the opening over the insect and slide the gate closed, then transport it outdoors. We couldn’t resist this when we saw it--it’s unusual for sure, but very handy to have around.

  • Big improvement to my old method of bug removal

    E Waldrop, 12/28/2020 This is a huge step up from the cup and piece of paper method I have used for years. The sliding trap door is efficient and simple to operate. Works great against window surfaces and hard floors and I never have to hunt about for a stiff bit of paper while the spider tries to hide.
  • Sliding Trapdoor Insect Catcher

    Andrea Cousins, 4/20/2020 I like it a lot. The only difficulty is that ants and Asian beetles run up into the plastic area when I take them outside. Sometimes hard to coax them down.
    But I think this is a wonderful instrument.
  • Insect Catcher

    Page Kable, 11/9/2018 The shipping was right on time and the product is exactly as advertised. Great gift for one who won't kill insects!
  • Insect Catcher

    HW Butler, 9/6/2018 The grandkids love it! Easy to use, and no stings from weird looking bugs!
  • Smooth trap

    J. Moore, 8/15/2018 Simple and effective. The only requirement might be the surface on which the intended victim of the trap has landed or is crawling on. The trap door clearly works best on a smooth surface, so that it can get under short legs. A rough surface like, say, an unfinished board floor, might give some critters an out.

    Adrienne Klumpp, 11/10/2017 Wonderful idea, and it works well too. I would love to see someone come up with a catcher like this to use when I have to catch my cat to go to the vet.
  • fun to use!

    ml, 9/11/2017 this is a very humane way to deal with indoor crawlies. it also is good for developing/maintaining hand-eye dexterity (trying to keep up with skittering tempo to actually catch the critter).
