I do not think wasps chase people.
But for me, heights is bad, but you get used to it. Spiders and snakes we do not have in uk, for the most part.

Considered one of the most common phobias, an extreme fear of snakes could be evolutionarily imprinted in people, studies suggest. Long ago, spotting a snake (or even a spider) would have been an advantage to a person's survival, according to one study in which adults and children could pick out images of snakes among various non-threatening objects more quickly than they could pinpoint frogs and flowers. The ability to spot a snake in the blink of an eye, the researchers say, likely helped our ancestors survive in the wild.

I have a phobia of feet, clowns, and I'm claustrophobic. The foot phobia is a hell of a lot worse though.
