Insects are another common dream theme. Generally, they appear in your dreams much as they show up in life; as sources of minor irritations or annoyances with people or situations. • However, insects left unchecked can grow quickly, in vast numbers and be harbingers of disease. Infestations in your dream indicate a course of action that is long overdue! • Ants indicate a need to work together as a team, bees are about being busy but also appreciating the sweetness of your life.
