My favorite bug story... Started rehearsal and all the sudden my 1st chair clarinet player gets up, starts freaking out, points to her instrument, screams and runs out the door. |
I pick up the clarinet, look up the bell and the inside is COVERED with sugar ants. She had eaten candy and practice the day before. They had crawled on her hands and face!!
Makes a great story to deter kids from eating then playing their instruments.

: While play-testing bass clarinets, a live
: cockroach was found in one of the cases.
: When trying to get it out, it kept crawling
: in deeper. And then when play-testing
: another bass clarinet, there were live gnats
: that flew out and started biting. I'm sure
: this has happened to others before. My
: question is what did you do?
: If you fumigate the case (after removing the
: instrument, of course), will it be harmful
: to the player later on? Do I just need to
: throw out the cases and buy new ones? Bass
: clarinet cases are not too cheap, but I am
: so grossed out I almost want to just take
: out the instruments and burn the cases. Die,
: bugs, Die!!!
