Getting a wasp, bee, bug out of the house
Submitted by Pat, a kind and sensible person
Sometimes you find a bee, wasp, beetle, or unidentified flying insect and you just want to get it back outside where it belongs.
These types of insects have a predictable behavior: they will climb to the top of whatever they're on, and then fly off. They don't want to fly until they've reached the top.
So carry the critter on a piece of paper, or your hand, or whatever object it's on, and keep turning it so that it never reaches the top until you're outside. Then watch as it finishes its climb, tests the wind, spreads its little wings, and returns to its own world.
