Flying insects are widely spread throughout Amman and Jordan. They can be found in houses, restaurants, warehouses, factories, offices, companies, hotels, hospitals, schools, universities, banks, and others. 

Bash Services provides specialized treatment designed to effectively and efficiently control and prevent pests from spreading an infection within your house or workplace. Our use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques focuses on finding and treating the source of pests. Most flying insects come from outside where they breed in decaying organic materials and food (such as meat, fruits and vegetables) or feces. These include compost piles, farms, dead animals on the roads, and litter boxes — virtually anywhere there is decomposing organic matter, and thus, flying insects can carry and transmit diseases such as salmonella. They multiply in decaying matter and feces and bacteria can attach to their bodies, especially on their legs and wings. 

Flying insects are not welcome in our environment for number of reasons: 

  1. Bites and stings that cause pain and swelling.
  2. Bites can transmit a large number of dangerous bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases to humans and pets; it can also cause allergies and asthma.
  3. Contamination of food, water and surfaces as they feed on food products in stores, spoiling and contaminating them.
  4. It feeds on fabric such as clothing and furniture.
  5. It causes damage to wood, clothing, and furniture.

Flying Ants Control

  • Ants are generally considered more of a nuisance than a danger, although some species do bite and sting. 
  • The nest produces large numbers of winged males and females that mate and reproduce, but this rarely causes a problem because it disappears quickly and is easy to remove if it appears indoors.

Bees and Wasps Control

  • Bees are generally viewed as beneficial insects due to their role in pollinating food and horticultural crops.  
  • Unlike wasps that visit flowers only for the nectar and pollen. Worker bees sting only as a defense mechanism when they feel threatened. 
  • African honey bees are more aggressive than European breeds, so they need to be handled very carefully.  
  • A bee sting is very painful, especially for children, and in some cases results in a serious allergic reaction. Bees also leave their needles in the skin, so they must be removed. 
  • There are hundreds of species of wasps and bees around the world. Only a few are considered pests in Jordan.  
  • Some species, such as honeybees, are actually a valuable part of our ecosystem. 
  • Bash Services provides a professional service in removing bee nests safely.
