Arachnophobia (fear of spiders) doesn’t discriminate – the creepy crawlies can scare anyone and everyone.
In the unfortunate instance you encounter a spider, you probably want to get rid of it ASAP.
Good thing then that Aldi is launching a catcher that doesn’t require you to touch the spider or get too close, and doesn’t kill the bug in the process.
The new contraption catches the eight-legged intruders with soft brittles that safely pop them inside.
Good news, it comes on the end of a big stick which means you won’t have to be up close with the creatures.
The handy little device – which costs £7.99 – can also be used to trap moths, butterflies and daddy long legs.
While slapping them with a piece of paper is certainly cheaper, at least this item means you won’t be killing them.
The product launches 25 August so make a note and add it to your cart, sharpish.
It comes at a good time as the rainy weather usually forces more spiders inside during autumn.
Spider season happens during this time where male spiders are on the hunt for lady friends to mate with.
Now you can use Aldi’s catcher so the spiders can take all their frolicking outside rather than on cobwebs in your kitchen.
The plastic rod is conveniently 68cm long meaning you can reach them when they’re on the ceiling while keeping a safe distance.
To use it, aim the bristles near the vicinity of the creature and gently squeeze the handles together to tighten the grasp.
Then run as far as you can and release the bristles to free the spider or insect.
You can get the spider catcher in-store or online and pre-ordering is available from the Aldi website.
But if you’re not buying anything else, you will need to pay a delivery charge or £2.95 – taking your total amount for the spider catcher to £10.94.
