In the war against pests, it pays to have insect-eating allies, such as the humble house spider, on your side. Still, many homeowners would prefer not to encounter these beneficial bugs indoors. To rid your home of spiders without squashing them, there may be nothing better than a no-harm bug catcher. The gentle vacuum lets you pull in your eight-legged friends so you can deposit them safely outdoors, where you can continue to capitalize on their voracious appetite for winged insects, from a safe distance.
