Knock Knock / Equipment

Knock Knock
Knock Knock

This design is for wild wasps. During outdoors activities people often get attacked by wasps for unintended intruding their space, and men usually exterminate the attackers for revenge. Actually both of men and wasps are innocent. In the design I refer to animals’ intuition of signaling their territory with special smell to establish relationship with wasps so as to avoid conflicts. “Knock Knock” is placed at the entrance of wasps’ territory and man entering will be signaled with the specific smell. It works just like ringing the doorbell when we drop in on someone. It is an informing and a good way to keep a good relationship with animals.
