A classic sign of witchcraft, and one that is rarely talked about online, is the onslaught of insects swarms. The usual culprits are flies, gnats, mosquitoes, ants and fleas. These tend to be the most common critters used today by witches. Bees, wasps and other insects were less frequently used. In the past locusts and other vermin were used to destroy crops and vegetation. Because of the current rise of bed bug infestations, I'm curious to learn if they have a connection to witchcraft but I have yet to hear from anyone regarding this. (Trust me. One of the best ways to royally screw some one's life up is to inflict them with a plague of bed bugs. It will drive them nuts and eventually force them to move if they can't get it under control.)
Now, when I mention witchcraft I do not mean Wiccans or modern self-styled witches. Instead, I am referring to old-school witches, evil doers who use so-called black magic against people. When potential clients contact me and claim they they think they are crossed up or under some type of curse and mention what's happening while including they've come under attack by bugs of some sort, then I'm usually worried. The inclusion of insects and bugs usually is indicative of a powerful practitioner being responsible. It's a sign of serious witchcraft at work. Unfortunately most people who contact me with such complains mistakenly believe that conjure workers, or any other practitioner of a magical tradition, are somehow bound to help them for free. So most of them refuse to pay to have it removed and all I can do is tell them "God Bless You". Deep inside I know they are probably going to have their life destroyed, if not outright die.
The key thing to determine is if any insect problem is natural or supernatural in origin. If you are having an insect problem and are not experiencing any of the classic indicators of being crossed up then you shouldn't worry about it. However, if you are having a run of bad luck, illness, stuff breaking, nightmares, fights, accidents, and say a plague of flies, ants or gnats in your home then rest assured that you are under spiritual attack. Below are some pointers.
Houseflies - If you have a swarm of houseflies in your home and can't identify why they are there, check to see if there is a dead animal or rotting food that is attracting them. Check to see if there is something just outside the door or window that would attract them. If nothing can be found to explain their presence then it might be witchcraft. When a swarm of houseflies are present in a case of witchcraft it tends to be very strong and dangerous.
Gnats - There many different types of gnats that can infest a house. The most common are fruit flies. You can identify them because they have a reddish or orange-ish color to them. They are attracted to fruit and sweet things left out. They like trash as well. To discourage them do not keep fruit lying out. Keep fruit in the fridge instead. Do not let trash set out too long. Keep your house tidy. Another type of gnat that is common found in the home are fungus gnats. They breed in the potting soil and can be a huge nuisance. Fungus gnats are black and can be identified by mainly hanging around your house plants. Fungus gnats can be controlled by letting the soil in your plants dry completely. Their offspring needs wet soil to live and if you let the soil dry out it will kill them. You can also replace a few inches of potting soil, removing it and disposing it, and replacing it with sand. This will rob the young of fungus gnats of a food source and they will starve. You can also simply re-pot any plants with new, sterile potting mixture. Two more common gnats are sewer flies and biting midges. Sewer flies are usually a sign that you have sewer problems, such as a back-up or break in the sewer line. Sewer flies are black and when they walk they walk in a zig-zag line, unlike the straight path that other gnats walk. Biting midges are perhaps the worse because they actually feed off of blood. Make sure you don't have any sources of open water for which they can breed in. The same with mosquitoes. A good remedy that will get rid of many gnats is to take a small cup and add a squirt of dish soap to it. Top it with an inch or so of apple cider vinegar. You can use white vinegar if that's all you have but you might want to add a drop of yellow or red food coloring as gnats tend to like those colors. Leave the cup out where you notice the gnats like to congregate. Gnats, especially fruit flies, are attracted to the smell of vinegar as it signals rotting fruit to them. They will land on the water to drink it. The inclusion of dish soap means the water no longer has the surface tension they need to support their weight and they will immediately fall through and drown. Keep the cup in the location for at least a week, if not longer. One time I had to use this trick to get rid of a fruit fly infestation. I left the cup out for 4 days. When I picked it up to inspect it there were 21 dead fruit flies in it. So it truly does work.
Ants - If your home is plagued with ants check to see what, if anything, is attracting them. Look for leftover food or dead things. If nothing can be found don't automatically jump to a witchcraft explanation. Normally, the tell that an ant infestation may be witchcraft is when they bite/sting people. So if you or someone in your house wakes up to ants crawling all over them and biting/stinging them then that would be the time to suspect witchcraft. Ants can usually be controlled with insecticide sprays.
Fleas - If your house has become infested with fleas and you don't have any pets nor any problems with mice or rodents then it might be witchcraft. Fleas can be controlled with a insecticide bomb or fogger. You will need to cover items and leave the home for a few hours.
Roaches - Believe it or not, roaches rarely are associated with witchcraft. Usually roaches get severe in accordance with the cleanliness of the house. So it's usually filthy homes that get over run with roaches. Don't try to deal with roaches yourself. Hire a pest control company.
Bees/Wasps - Rarely associated with witchcraft. However, sometimes bee infestations can be associated with a spirit but it's usually not one that has been directed to attack anyone. There was a home in my area that I visited where bees had completely taken over a wall. You could hear them all buzzing away. It was real freaky. The family were poor and lived with it for years. The daughter lived in the room and I don't know how she wasn't driven crazy from the sound. No bees ever came out though. In that case I sensed there was a spirit but it wasn't really harmful nor was it directed to attack the family. The house was eventually torn down.
When insect problems are associated with spiritual attacks there is also usually a demon or evil/negative spirit involved. This would be one or more spirits the witch has invoked and sent out to attack you. I have to mention this because most people are simply not powerful enough to deal with this on their own. A professional should really be sought out to handle the situation. A very strong cleansing of the person(s) and home needs to be performed and a possible reversal work or spiritual warfare with the witch might need to ensue. This would all be followed with very strong protection work
