That’s a wrap!

Hello from the work week ending 28 April 2017

This week nature invaded our otherwise sterile Auckland office. The debacle started when our junior designer, who by the way, has an avid phobia of anything lacking exoskeletons, discovered a tiny worm making its way across her keyboard. One by one, colleagues sitting in the same area noticed the same intruders on their work area. Cue chaos. They were hanging out on computer screens and under desks. Some swift Googling by our creative manager identified them as Indian mealmoth larvae.

The bug man was called and we eventually found the guilty cupboard – one in the kitchen a few metres away where cereal was stored. We can only conclude that the larvae went on a grand adventure over the course of the weekend, journeying the treacherous landscape from the kitchen to our desks. Much to our delight, however, they are no more.
