General: Irritations or feeling something ‘bugging one; feeling insignificant – the ant in the mass of other ants; sexual urges, especially with cock-roaches; as Jiminy Cricket suggests, insects can represent our conscience and guilt which reminds us of feelings we might sooner forget – perhaps insects represent these areas because they live their life in our house and garden largely unseen – so depict thoughts and feelings occurring on the edge of consciousness. Also: Ones children – if flying off, children leaving home. Wasp or hornets: Painful emotions; feeling stung by remarks. Lice or parasites: Thoughts or sexual habits which are purely selfish or carry a health risk; feeling others are parasitic. Spider: Often the dependent emotions and conflicts one feels ‘caught in’ connected with mother; any emotions you don’t want to ‘handle’, such as those surrounding a spouse leaving; wanting to ensnare, or feeling trapped by someone.
