Roach grabber...


Recommended Posts

This is a proof of concept for a device to safely pick up small roaches. Using small zip-ties, short strips of silicone were attached to a pair of self-closing tweezers.

The silicone strips may need to be replaced by rubber; the surface is very slick and provides poor grip.

No roaches were harmed during this test.

I replaced the blue silicone with strips from a bicycle inner tube. Should work a little better, not as slippery as the silicone.

Forceps might be the best solution because you can lock them in position, applying the least amount of pressure to get the job done. Hold them in position for the class pictures?
