Put the cat among the pigeons

Recommended Posts

If you put the cat among the pigeons, you do or say something that causes trouble or argument:

Her open criticism of the CEO has put the cat among the pigeons in the company.

There's a similar expression that uses the image of disturbing an insect's nest. Any idea what that is:

Her open criticism of the CEO has ....stirred............... (verb) up the ........hornet..................'s (insect) nest.

Hello Minoo,

I think it could be this: "Her open criticism of the CEO has stirred up the hornet's nest".
