We've probably all been there. You're trying to concentrate when there suddenly... bzzzzzzt you look around and carry on... bzzzzzzt [10ms pause] bzzzzzzzzzt. You decide to get up to check what's causing this noise.
There it is: A flying insect (mostly a fly or wasp) furiously trying to escape through the closed window. Most of the time they're just inches away from the open window.
I usually take a notepad and try to flick the insect in the direction of the open window. But just yesterday, when a giant hornet was trapped, I was scared that I would flick it against myself and it took me at least twice the time to get it out.
Sometimes the insect also starts to fly around the room and bangs against multiple windows.
Is there any way to make a flying insect leave (faster) on their own or to help them find the open window?
Keep in mind that I'm a pet friendly (including insects) person and don't want to kill the insect - especially not, if it's a dangerous one.
