Spider Catcher Is Perfect For The Arachnophobic Pacifist

We’ve all been through the dilemma of what to do when a spider is hanging around. Some take extreme action and use the boot, some fiddle with a newspaper or coffee mug, while the lucky few who don’t mind having them around leave them to their business.
