Spider mating season. Three words to send shivers down your spine. For some people (read: us) coming face-to-hairy-legs with spiders is terrifying. But now there's a little help from Aldi to ease our arachnid worries: The good old spider catcher.

One woman shared the handy £7.99 find from Aldi on her TikTok page. User Liv Dainton said: “Everyone in the UK run to Aldi and get a spider catcher right now!"

The spider-friendly catcher which doesn't harm them is for both indoor and outdoor use and is a ‘fun and friendly way to remove spiders and crawling insects’ including moths, butterflies and other unsavoury house guests.

Friendly? Yes. Fun? We beg to differ.

With over 264k views and 9,300 likes, users have applauded the creepy crawly catcher.

One person said: “I wouldn’t even dare use it.”

Another added: “Why buy that when you can just get your hoover?”

A third commented: “Just pick it up with your hands.”

One user wrote: "Spider catcher BFF."

Another penned: "I'm that petrified I still couldn't use this."

A non-spider lover added: "I've already got one. My shoe..."

What kind of catcher are you?
