: 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.

Howbout "let's lift up the rock and see what crawls out".
