Spider and Insect Trap – (Katcha Bug or Releasea Bug)
The Katcha Bug is now available in two sizes. The standard Katcha Bug (E10KB) base size is 90mm x 80mm, whereas the Big Bug Katcha (E10KBL) is 140mm x 120mm.
Both traps are gravity operated, which enables the trapping and/or release of specimens safely at arm’s length without touching them.
The shutter is placed over the specimen. The handle is rotated 90 degrees causing the shutter to slide down enclosing the insect in the trap.
The specimen can then be carried around in the trap with the shutter in the closed position.
The handle is then simply rotated 90 degrees, causing the shutter to drop releasing the specimen. It uses no chemicals or poisons and thereby is safe and hygienic.
The traps can also be used without the handle.
They are both very useful tools that are also used by quarantine/airline operators in the control of trapping/releasing insects.
