Dealing with Bugs

Dealing with Bugs

Yakeyama is located in the mountains, so you can expect insects like lady beetles and shield bugs to appear from time to time.

While they are generally harmless, they can occasionally be a nuisance.

We have prepared everything you need to take care of any insects you might spot.

  • Fly swatter
  • Insect Spray
  • Duct tape
  • Tissues

The kit is located in the cupboard near the front door for your convenience.

The shield bug (sometimes called a "stink bug") can emit an odor when threatened or swatted, so it's best to wrap them in tape than to squash them. Lady beetles, too, can emit a bright orange or red color when squashed, so it's best to wrap them in tape, too.
