Dennis/Tom can answer this one more in detail, but I remember Dennis telling us that he has a mouse now and then at his cabin, and he does the same thing with them as he does with the wasps, he communicates with them and gives them a chance to leave, before he must trap them for health reasons.
Good to see this, as I tried the same thing just a few weeks ago. I was showering, and a bumblebee buzzed into the bathroom through the open top window, and flew down to the window-sill. The way back out is to go back up and through the open light, but all the bee could think to do was to keep aimlessly bumping up against the frosted glass by the sill. It would have taken a long time to achieve this by trial and error, or expired in the attempt, as they usually do. Added to which, one feels more vulnerable to stinging insects on the loose when naked and wet in the shower! So, with some new-found confidence in consciousness communication, I went into meditative state and put myself in the bee's head, imagining its vision of the lighted window glass, and intended for it to fly up, up, up....and then out through the opening at the top. After just a few seconds, it did just that! Not a statistically significant proof, of course, but just a few minutes later, with me still in the shower, either the same or another bee came in as before. I did the same thing, and this time, the bee went straight up and out, with no delay!
No proof of anything, of course, but I was mightily pleased with myself, and my confidence boosted further!
I asked Tom in a PM about whether I was right or wrong to take specimens when trying to identify ant and other insect species (many of which have to be studied dead under a microscope) for recording/conservation purposes, and he said it was OK, providing that the intent was caring (conservation) and that no more than necessary were killed.
The clip sounds good, will look at it asap.
