Aldi's Incredible Spider Catcher Returns To Stores For £7.99

Aldi's amazing spider-catching gizmo is back - just in time for the dreaded autumn mating season, which sees the creepy crawlies invade our homes in their droves.

The device works in a similar way to a litter picker, but instead of grabbing pieces of rubbish, gentle bristles allow you to carefully catch a spider or daddy long legs without harming it.

The 60cm long handle also means you can access hard-to-reach areas - perfect for when you've discovered a massive spider staring down at you from your bedroom ceiling.

When you've managed to scoop the insect up, you can simply take it outside and let it free.

The gadget will cost £7.99 ($10.50), the same price as last time it was on sale at Aldi, with preorders available online from 23 August, before the product hits stores on 27 August.

It was a hit with customers when it was released last summer, with one review online said: "Does work. Been a 'lifesaver' for my husband, when I've not been home."

Aldi said of the product last year: "Do spiders give you the chills? Then this Spider Catcher is the perfect device for you.

"Easy to use, this is a quick and simple way for you to remove spiders from your home without harming them. Great for hard to reach places, you can simply pick-up spiders, daddy long legs and other bugs with the gentle bristles that work to contain them, before popping them outside."

Spiders are seen more frequently in early autumn as it marks the beginning of their mating season, meaning males are on the prowl for female mates.

The Natural History Museum website explains it's often tricky to deter spiders, meaning your best bet is to block entry points in your home, including 'open windows, chimneys or gaps beneath doors'.

The website says: "While these spiders are most numerous in outbuildings, such as garages or sheds, they move around at night (especially August to October) and enter living rooms through open windows and gaps around doors.

"As yet, nobody has invented an effective device to deter spiders. The remedy is to prevent their entry by closing windows and blocking gaps with the use of plaster, draught excluders and insect screens for doors and windows."

Of course, if they do manage to find a way in, you can always grab your trusty spider catcher to get rid of them.
