Well, it gets tense.
In case san insect gets stuck in your ear (though we REALLY hope it doesn't happen), here's how the National Institute of Health says to treat it:
1. DO NOT let the person put a finger in the ear. This may make the insect sting.
2. Turn the person's head so that the affected side is up, and wait to see if the insect flies or crawls out.
3. If this does not work, try pouring mineral oil, olive oil, or baby oil into the ear. For an adult, pull the ear lobe gently backward and upward as you pour the oil. For a child, pull the ear lobe backward and downward as you pour. The insect should suffocate and may float out in the oil. AVOID using oil to remove any object other than an insect, since oil can cause other types of foreign objects to swell.
4. Even if an insect appears to come out, get medical attention. Small insect parts can irritate the sensitive skin of the ear canal.
