Lots of people are afraid of spiders, or just don't like squashing them with a tissue when they show up on the wall, looking all hairy and evil. The nifty Spider Catcher is a tool that helps you get rid of spiders without killing them or having to come close to them at all. When you see a spider (or other insect), you merely place the catcher's bristles around it and pull the trigger. The bristles snap shut, grabbing (but not crushing) the spider firmly, and you can then carry it outside and release it. £9.99 UKP.
