– Did you know that a cockroach can hold its breath for 40 minutes and can even survive being submerged under water for half an hour.
-Roaches are excellent climbers, thanks to the brush-like pile on their legs and feet. Thousands of tiny pillus ends work together to create a suction cup-like force that allows them to climb steep vertical surfaces.
– When cockroaches shed skin or defecate, proteins produced in their bodies are released into the environment. These proteins become airborne allergens that cause allergic responses in humans.

PROFESSIONAL CARPENTER ANT PEST CONTROL IN NEWPORT NEWS
If you have a carpenter ant infestation in your home, your best option is to call the professionals at Universal Pest & Termite. We’ll deliver the solutions you need.
When we treat carpenter ant infestations, we follow a step-by-step process:
First, we check around your building’s perimeter for foraging trails, especially in the direction of trees and shrubs.
Next, we locate indoor nests. To do that, we look for frass and listen for the ants using listening devices. We may use a sounding tool to gently tap suspect wood in order to elicit sounds to reveal the presence of nest cavities. Carpenter ants may form network of trails they follow throughout a structure. They often use edge lines, the tops of electrical wires and water pipes.
Finally, we determine if the inside colony is a parent or satellite colony. We do this by observing carpenter ant activity. If we find a carpenter ant trail, we will follow it to the parent colony. If we find colony or colonies, we treat them directly using appropriately-labeled residual and non-residual insecticides. Carpenter ants are very active in Newport News.If you suspect an active carpenter ant infestation please contact us for a free inspection.
