My friends are normal??

Anyone have information regarding deities associated with pest control--specifically insects? All I can seem to come up with is Bast, which makes sense for rodent infestations, but less so for other types of pests. All practical and mundane measures are being taken by our rental office and ourselves in compliance with our lease, I just want a little extra 'oomph' for peace of mind.

Other than petitioning deities specifically related to certain insects and asking them to keep their charges from your spaces. Additionally, both cats and dogs are capable of going after any pests, be they rodents or insects. Many dogs try to eat flies or bees that bother them, and I have seen a number of cats that will go after roaches, spiders, and other large bugs. Bast may be able to help even if you are not sure yourself. Deities related to home and cleaning may additionally be helpful in keeping them from your work space, simply because a clean space is infestation free. Petitioning one of them may benefit you.

Cleansing, banishing, and/or warding spells may help you in your plight as well.

A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.

Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.

The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.

The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.

Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.

The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.

Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.

The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.

The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.

The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.

“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.

“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”
