I have I guess you'd call it apivespiphobia. Fear of bees and wasps. (But not ants, alas, which would have allowed me to use the more compact apocritaphobia.) And also really, really severe blattaphobia (fear of cockroaches).

Hooray for -phobia neologisms!

Let me tell you, growing up in the tropics was fun.

No "Infophobia" in the list? I'm almost insulted! It's the perfect word to describe all those woos who are afraid of information that might conflict with their fragile views.

They forgot two.

Nickedaphobia: Fear of the doctor getting the hiccups during your hernia operation.

Zappedaphobia: Fear of having a bedwetting accident while using an electric blanket.

(MAD magazine's book of fears and phobias. I highly recommend it.)

As a former gymnast (specializing in the trampoline) we coined the word catapedacrophobia: fear of jumping high, to describe a member of our club who seemed afflicted with it.
