Fear of Bees and Wasps – How hypnosis can gently train your mind to replace fear with calm around stinging insects
Does even the buzz of a bee or a wasp have your heart racing and palms sweating?
Do you find it hard to enjoy yourself outdoor because you’re worried you might have to deal with stinging insects?
Being concerned about insects that can sting you is not irrational. Bee and wasp stings can be quite unpleasant, and some people can have allergic reactions and have extra reason to take care.
So, it’s sensible to avoid doing anything that might frighten any stinging insect you encounter, as they are not on the hunt for humans, and will not attack unless they feel threatened.
So, for example, wildly flapping your hands at a bee that’s buzzing around your head is not sensible behavior, as it risks seriously frightening them and will put them on the defensive. That’s when you’re much more likely to get stung – although even then the bee is more likely to try to get away than actually go for you.
But you probably know all that.
Why a fear of wasps or bees makes you behave irrationally
You know even as you’re doing it that waving your arms about isn’t helping. But it feels like you can’t help it. Something just drives you into a panic, and in a panic nobody can think straight.
And when you know that the sight of a wasp or the buzz of a bee is going to send you into a panic, it seems like a good idea to just avoid situations where you might encounter these tiny creatures.
But the problem is, you can’t fully avoid them and live a normal life. Sometimes you just find yourself right there when a wasp comes buzzing by. And off goes the panic.
Fear of wasps or bees is really a fear of panic
The truth is that the problem is not the bees or the wasps. Human beings have lived happily alongside them for millennia, and although some people get stung sometimes and that’s not nice, we generally know how to co-exist peacefully with them. The problem is the panic.
What is panic? It is an overwhelming feeling of fear. The strength of this feeling is not necessarily proportional to the ‘threat’ that triggers it. In the case of fears and phobias, the trigger can even have nothing whatever to do with the fear.
Of course, with bees and wasps, there is a genuine element of threat, but when you objectively consider what danger a sting of this nature is, it is clear that the fear is out of all proportion.
It doesn’t really matter how you acquired this disproportionate ‘panic’ response. The good news is that you can easily ‘reset’ the level of response that your automatic ‘fight or flight’ system generates in your body.
Won’t it be nice to be able to sit out in a garden or park, or enjoy a barbecue with your family and friends, without worrying about what other forms of life might be attending the event?
