Hi! I'm CalCatDoc and I can help with your question.

Can you tell me the brand name of this spider trap so I can get product information?

Expert:  CalCatDoc replied 1 year ago.

I need to know the specific product so that I can give you correct advice. I am not sure they all use the same glue.

Hello, and welcome.

My name is***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon and I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.

1. The good news is this glue is typically not toxic. Usually you can dissolve the glue stuck on her fur with heavy application of vegetable cooking oil or mineral oil, work it in for a few minutes and then you wash it off with the likes of Dawn washing up soap and rinse well. You may need to repeat the process a couple of times but it will come off in the end.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
