I recommend that you do a risk analysis of the likelihood of getting stung if you do nothing.
I agree with Sekha that what is probably more the problem is indulging in a fear that is disproportionate with the risk of an adverse event.
Make a decision based on rationality and objectivity rather than raw emotion. If that means a difficult course of action or inaction, so be it.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
