However, one of the more interesting is called the Cup-A-Bug and is an actual insect catcher. It will be up to the sharks to decide if this is a venture worth investing money in after hearing the pitch.

Here is what you need to know about the Cup-A-Bug insect catcher and where you can buy one for yourself.

What Is Cup-A-Bug On Shark Tank?

Inventor Justin Huang created the Cup-A-Bug insect catcher and brings it to Shark Tank tonight. The idea behind this product is to create a humane way to catch insects in the home and release them back into nature without killing them. The entire device is a cup attached to a pole with a pivot mechanism. This allows people to catch insects no matter where they crawl away and hide.

The idea is similar to the old-school way of using a piece of paper and catching a bug under a cup on it. There is also a brush attached to the end of the cub to lure the insects from out of corners or off ceilings. Once caught in the cup, a person can then release the insects back into the outdoors unharmed. Not only is this more humane for bugs, but it is also safer for families.

This keeps children and pets safe from chemicals, keeps things cleaner from not squashing bugs, and also eliminates concerns over toxins and electricity. Huang didn’t necessarily create the device out of a love for bugs. He had a lifelong fear of insects and wanted to confront his fears ethically. This device allows him to catch and release bugs from a safe distance.

Huang launched the Kickstarter campaign in 2021 and raised over $28,000 to start production.
