Afraid to go outside

Question:

Our 2 year old female Chloe is afraid to go outside. This started about a week ago. We looked around the steps and found a bees nest underneath and figured she must be afraid of the bees. We got rid of it and have tried to show her that it is "safe" now, but she still will not go outside unless we leash her. We have a big fenced in yard and until a week ago she loved being outside. The only thing we can figure is that maybe she was stung by a bee, however she has been perfectly normal and her usual JRT self in the house. Any suggestions on how we can help her overcome her fear of stepping out the door?

Thanks,
Linda
