Savoir-Faire Amusing Solution

I just finished Savoir-Faire by Emily Short. The “AMUSING” section at the end suggests:

Have you succeeded in…
– using the clock as an aid in killing the rat?

How do I do that?

Haven’t played, but what pops to mind for some reason is “Hickory Dickory Dock”…though that was a mouse.

I thought of that, too.

Before posting, I tried setting the clock to various times of day, on or around 1:00. No response.

I thought it was less direct: you can use the clock chiming to release the bee, rather than doing it by hand.
