    I love this device so much I have ordered three so far and recommend them to anyone who wants to kindly transport bugs back outside.

    I initially left a negative review of the bug viewer (plastic slider left too much space to properly capture the bugs), however after light tinkering the slider is back in place and device now works great.

    This is an inexpensive and effective tool for removing bugs safely and placing outside where they belong.

      Thank you for purchasing the BugView. This product is meant to assist in catching bugs that crawl on grass, floors or walls. Due to the nature of the design, it does not work on flying insects. With the slider open, place the magnifier over the critter then slide it closed. You can then release it back into nature.

    We’ve always “caught and released” insects and birds that got into our home near the woods. It is so much easier with this tool. And the advantage of looking at the patterns on beetles and/or bees is so worth the small price. It’s like having a mini-microscope or a science kit. I bought one for my granddaughter’s pre-school. Her teacher loved it! Perfect, end of school year gift.

    Quick delivery on a fabulous new toy for me, but have not yet had an opportunity to use it. Very excited about the possibilities that lie ahead!

    I purchased two of these BugViews as gifts for two granddaughters, ages 12 and 13. What a perfect gift to encourage outdoor scientists. I read the article in the New York Times Sunday magazine speaking about this item and ordered it right away. I am very pleased. Thank you.

    This product is great for turning insect fear to curiosity. Safely viewing your catch, then safely releasing them outside helps everyone learn to care about the world around them.

    A gift to my four-year-old nephew – he loves it – takes it everywhere with him, even to the bathtub!
