What does Apiphobia mean in medical terms ?
Apiphobia is a disorder that we can describe as the fear of bees, which is formed by the combination of the words apis, which means bee in Latin, and phobos, which means fear. As with other phobias, the underlying causes of apiphobia are psychological.
The symptoms are the same as with other types of phobias. An extreme state of anxiety, trembling, desire to get away from the environment.
Some patients are afraid of being stung by bees, not the bees theirselves.
