Apshai is the demipower of insects in the Egyptian pantheon. He doesnt have many worshippers, mostly just farmers praying to him to keep their fields free of bugs. He does not really have any particular dogma, either.

Portfolio sense: Apshai is aware of the actions of any hivemind of insects, as long as it includes at least 1000 creatures. He is similarly aware of any infestation affecting at least 1000 homes or farms.
Create Magic Items: Apshai can create magical items involving insects as long as the market price does not exceed 4,500.
