Early game shine bugs are very useful and can often be sufficient to support enough plants to feed your dupes. However controlling the shine bugs has proven impossible for me.
If I'm lucky enough to lock them in with doors in the same room as the plants in time, they usually stay in. However I haven't been able to catch them in a room with plants if they start outside. I usually end up using lights to grow my plants.
Attacking the shine bugs just destroys them, it cannot be used to chase them in a particular direction.
Is there a way to 'push' them in a room with plants?
