Turbo Bug Vacuum

"What is THAT?" I said, while pointing frantically at the floor where something small was crawling its way across, making a beeline for the sofa where it would likely disappear until I went to sleep when I would wake with it on me. As I began to reach for a large book to squash it my dear friend Lucy yelled, "Wait! Wait!" and then disappeared down the hall. When she came back she had one of these bug vacuumn's in her hand but from Sharper Image in a white/light blue combo. She vacuumed that little sucker up, trapped him in the observatory portion and then relocated it outside to live another day. The bug vacuumn is designed as a toy for kids to better examine insects they collect. It also, apparently, works as a tool for adults that don't like bugs, don't want to touch them and don't want to hurt them.
yes, i'm deathly afraid of bugs (btw, i'm the lucy mentioned in nicole's post)... especially spiders. i can't even get the nerve to kill them. so this bug vac is a life saver!!! so easy and mess-free! :)
