Looking for a phrase

Posted by Andy Blitzer on November 24, 2002

Does anybody know the phrase that describes poking a stick at some insect to see what "crawls out". I've been trying to remember and it's driving me nuts. It's similar to "rattling someone's cage" which to me means disturbing someone who has done you wrong.
