How to solve this problem? You could spend the next 20 minutes chasing the thing around with a rolled-up newspaper (at least it will get your heart-rate up), but then it'll be at least an hour before you really calm down and get back to sleep. Instead, use the bugger's own stupid instincts against him: Keeping the lights in your bedroom off, open the window (or a door to the bathroom in a pinch), and turn on the outside (or bathroom) light. The dumb thing will be irresistibly drawn to the light (why, I don't know- do I look like an entomologist?) and go buzzing right out the window or door. Turn out the light and quickly slam the door, leaving your winged nemesis locked out of your room. And your nostrils.
P.S. I know this pic has little to do with today's post, but sometimes I come across a photo so ridiculous, I just can't help myself. Thank you for your indulgence.
P.P.S. Seriously- who built that bike? It's too much.
