Hello, this is Manami. The wind was really strong the other day so I slept with the window open, it was too cold while I was asleep in my bed but I didn’t mind it too much.
This time’s story describes the occassional “little customers” who visit our STUDIO SALLY office from time to time.
As I wrote in the last article, various types of plants are raised in our studio.
So there are quite a lot of encounters with insects and animals of all kinds.
During this summer, a few stag beetles were first found on our fir tree and all the staff were extremely excited (in both good and bad ways, haha).
During this instance, we created a temporary residence for our little stag beetle friend because he seemed tired and barely moved. We watched him carefully as he made STUDIO SALLY his new home for a while. Once he seemed to recover he was up and gone the next day and we missed our “little customer” for a while.
Goodbye stag beetle!
Another time, when the windows were kept open, big moths and scarab beetles get in. Then they take a suitable break and long before we know it they are gone.
Goodbye scarab beetle and moth.
Well I guess we can say that our “little customers” have had wonderful summer trips here, however…
There was one “little customer” which we were not too pleased to see the other day…
It was a wasp!
Relatively if it’s just a regular old bee is it not too much of a problem and most people would think it’s no big deal but I am terribly afraid of these little creatures…
But because it was a wasp it was ten times more horrible.
I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible but I did not want to fight it.
There was no insecticide or anything I could use to lure it away.
And my goal was to get rid of it as smoothly as possible.
Ryo and I, who were present at the scene of action, were left in a panic as to what to do next.
Put it outside.
It was flying around for a while and then suddendly stopped at the ceiling. So Ryo got on top of a chair and found a cup that the wasp could be trapped in.
Furthermore, because the distance to the balcony where we wanted to return the wasp safely outside was so far away, this incident turned into a mystery cooperation between the both of us. It consisted of myself moving the chair in which Ryo was standing on, towards the direction of the door slowly, while he was holding the cup…
We felt silly making all this commotion for a little bug, but this was a serious matter!…
It was a wasp!
I managed to open the door to the storage room somehow and we succeed in taking the container out with the wasp inside, as opposed to the strategy to take it outside and I kept thinking it might come back inside again.
However, while I was saying that we stopped to enter and saw there was an opened window nearby. We checked and double checked but nothing.
It suddenly disappeared, I was skeptical for a while, I kept checking and looking around the room.
It was a summer horror experience.
I wish I could change my mindset to the point where we could have our “little customer” wasp friend’s over for tea..
