Bugs - here I come and I have the Critter Catcher with me! I am going to suck you up safely and inspect you.

Place the motor generated vacuum over the bug and press the vacuum switch. It automatically sucks the bugs up. Once the bugs are in the viewing chamber, remove it and close the cap. The lid of the viewing chamber is magnified for close inspection of your accomplishments.

National Geographic Critter Catcher Bug Vac is proficient in sucking up all kinds of bugs. There are over 900,000 bugs in existence, time to get catching!

    Catch Them Critters
    Posted 8/22/2014 by Pat Frank

    I have a couple of granddaughters that were frightened of any kind of bug. Bought this to show them the bugs can be interesting and non-threatening if given a good long safe look. This little vacuum seems to be doing the trick.

    Product review of National Geographic Critter Catcher Bug Vac
    Posted 8/5/2014 by David Feder

    The vacuum could be a bit more powerful, and the catch tube must be removed and the magnifying glass closed giving a potential for lost subject matter. We gave one to a 4 year old at a summer camp and many of the counselors wanted to know where they could buy one. Sounds like they had entertainment on rainy days in mind. The other was given to a 5 1/2 year old and he played with it till bedtime.

    My rating of National Geographic Critter Catcher Bug Vac

    I bought this toy for my wife and I to remove spiders from our home without killing them. Obviously this needs to be considered when reading this review.

    Critter catcher Bug Vac
    Posted 9/12/2013 by Gena

    I purchased the bug vac not as a toy but to get bugs out of the house without harming them. There are much cheaper bug vacs on the market but they do harm to the bugs. I've had the chance to use it once, it did the job perfectly. The only constructive criticism I have is that the "on/off" switch should state the on/off position, which it doesn't.
