    Because this is such a common occurrence and the solution to the problem is not usually taught on bushcraft courses it’s worthwhile being reminded of the best way to deal with it.

    Weta with its head stuck in the kitchen sink plughole


    1. It’s important to get into the habit of carefully checking all the plugholes in your house first thing every morning. It’s easy to overlook a weta’s abdomen and hind legs when a bit bleary eyed.


    2. Extraction is relatively simple. Gently hold the weta’s hind legs and slowly and carefully lift it out. It will struggle a bit but that’s to be expected.

    Much happier now


    3. Let it climb onto your hand and get it to a safe place outside before it has climbed up your arm and is out of reach behind your neck.


    4. Forget about your morning cup of tea because you are now late for work.
