RODENT CONTROL – Most rodents encountered within the Arlington area are rats, mice and squirrels. Squirrels are a “nuisance wildlife” problem and are dealt with carefully. Rats and mice, however, cause considerable damage and spread filth and disease. Rats commonly nest in home and commercial building insulation causing it to decompress and lose much of its insulation value. The insulation is also contaminated with rat filth, feces and urine. The cost to replace insulation and decontaminate an attic or crawlspace can be high. Rats (and mice too) also gnaw into electrical insulation on wires causing short circuits and even fires. Rats also contaminate stored food and damage stored items and parts of home (roofing, etc) by gnawing holes.

Cascade Pest Control specializes in rat, rodent and mouse control in the city of Arlington. Cascade’s technicians are uniquely trained to detect rodent issues, assess rat infestations and plan control measures to eradicate the rats or mice. More information about Rodent Control.

ANT CONTROL – Ants problems can come in two forms: nuisance ants that plague your kitchen and other areas inside the home, and wood destroying ants, such as carpenter ants. Carpenter ants are very prevalent throughout Arlington. They lived here for thousands of years in the original forests. But carpenter ants can easily adapt to the wall cavities of homes and move in, then continue to tunnel into the wood eventually causing significant damage requiring a contractor. Other pest ants found in Arlington are filthy nuisances that roam throughout our homes. These species include the “Odorous House Ant” and others.

The City of Arlington – Information and History

Arlington is a city in northern Snohomish County, Washington, United States, bordered by the city of Marysville to the south. The population was 17,926 at the 2010 census. ~Wikipedia

Arlington is a city in northern Snohomish County, Washington, United States, bordered by the city of Marysville to the south. The population was 17,926 at the 2010 census. This area was occupied by indigenous peoples for thousands of years. Arlington was platted by European Americans in 1890, and was named after Lord Henry Arlington, a member of Charles II of England’s cabinet. Haller City was a nearby town founded April 24, 1890, by Theodore Haller and his parents Henrietta and Granville O. Haller. When Arlington was incorporated as a city in May 5, 1903, it included Haller City. The city is home to the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Museum. ~Wikipedia

Incorporated in 1903, the City of Arlington is located in northern Snohomish County approximately 10 miles north of Everett and 40 miles north of Seattle. The City of Arlington is situated at the forks of the Stillaguamish River. Coast Salish people from prehistoric times, primarily of the Stillaguamish Tribe, stopped to camp at the forks as they passed up and down the river following the abundant fish runs and otherwise using the river as a primary travel corridor. The Stillaguamish called the place Skabalko.

Exploration of the future Arlington area by setters of European descent began around 1851 with a prospector visit followed in 1856 by a U.S. Army trail from present day Snohomish crossing the river just below the forks. A rough wagon road closely following the old trail brought pioneers coming from the Marysville area in the mid-1880s; others came by canoe. A store was opened at the forks in the spring of 1887 by Nels K. Tvete and Nils C. Johnson. The White House Hotel owned by loggers Lee Rogers and Al Dinsmore opened about 4 months later.

In the spring of 1890, two rival towns were actually platted within one month of each other in what is present-day Arlington. Arlington was platted in March of that year and Haller City in April. Haller City, including the store and hotel, was located on the riverbank with Arlington on higher ground to the south. It was Haller City which contained the much of City’s present-day shoreline areas since it was located along the river with Arlington farther inland.

Rivalry between the two towns continued for a several years, with Arlington apparently having a distinct advantage with respect to the location of a critical railroad depot. Haller City’s location along the river bank was not as suitable for a depot, so it was built on higher ground farther from the river, in Arlington. By year’s end, Arlington also had an express office, a warehouse, telegraph, and a post office while Haller City had a blacksmith, hay dealers, shoemakers, stage line, meat market, livery, hotel, and vet surgeon. By 1895, however, a number of businessmen in Haller City conceded that it would be better to be up in Arlington. Leading were Tvete and Johnson who moved their original general store by ox team up to a lot on 4th Street in Arlington, and others followed. Eventually, all that was left in Haller City were the shingles mills and housing.

The two towns were incorporated into one in 1903 (taking the name of Arlington), with Division Street serving as a reminder that there were once two towns. The community of Smokey Point itself got its name back in the 1950s from a restaurant named the Smokey Point Café. Located on the northwest corner of 172nd Street NE and Smokey Point Boulevard/SR 531, the café generated a plume of smoke, hence the name Smokey Point.
