Fear of Bees (Often through a specific trauma)
Usually connected with Spheksophobia (wasps fear).
Not entirely irrational but something that can actually make itself worse
with time. see avoidance principle.
I feared neither wasp nor bee until I was 15 years old. I was
stung. It hurt a lot. I avoided being near lots of bees or wasps
(bins), I would strike out at them "first" and inevitably they stung me.
I thought they could taste my fear. It was simpler I
frightened the hapless things with my sudden dashes for safety it was
I who caused my pain. I had to learn that Fear is a self-fulfilling
prophecy and then I could take control of my life back from the bees and wasps.
