The Catcha Bug is a handy and useful tool to assist in the study of insects, or to simply and safely remove unwanted insects and release them without harm to the insect or user. This clever product works by trapping the insect within the clear trap space and then, by simply closing the slider with the thumb, safely capturing the insect inside. The insect may then be studied in situ, relocated to an observation tank, or simply taken outside for safe release.
