We’ve been taking care of people’s residences and commercial properties for over 35 years in Lake Stevens and surrounding communities.
We know how to handle the unique challenges of pest control in the Northwest – aggressive rodent infestations, destructive carpenter ants and other insect populations that rise each season. In fact, we’ve become specialists in rodent control, using methods that are family and pet friendly.
RODENT CONTROL – Most rodents encountered within the Lake Stevens 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 Lake Stevens. 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 greater Lake Stevens. 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 Lake Stevens are filthy nuisances that roam throughout our homes. These species include the “Odorous House Ant” and others.

Lake Stevens is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States that surrounds the lake bearing the same name. It is sometimes referred to as “The Lake Como of Washington” in pop culture. It is southeast of Marysville, north of the city of Snohomish, and east of Everett. The population as of the 2010 census was 28,069, with much of the growth due to annexation. Lake Stevens was officially incorporated on November 29, 1960. Believed to be named after Governor Isaac I. Stevens, Lake Stevens was first settled in 1886 on a 160-acre (0.65 km2) homestead along the east shore. By 1890 the first town in the area, “Ferry”, was established. Its name was later changed to “Hartford”, and it served as the main link from the famed Monte Cristo timber and mining resources to the world.
In 1905 a railroad spur was built by the Rucker Brothers Timber Company, linking Hartford with Lake Stevens. Two years later Rucker Mill was opened, located along and in the north cove of the lake (original pilings can still be seen in the old lake outflow area just south of the boat launch). In 1919, the mill, which became known as the “world’s largest sawmill”, burned and was partially rebuilt. When it burned a second time in 1925 the mill was dismantled and Lake Stevens lost the very industry which caused its founding. However, by then a flourishing town was established and continued under its own momentum.
From the 1920s to the 50’s Lake Stevens was primarily a resort community, with many public and private resort beaches scattered around the shore. In 1960 Lake Stevens incorporated as a City with a population of 900. Soon, its popularity and natural beauty, combined with changing commuter habits, attracted more and more residents, changing its character to that of a suburban community. By 2000 the City had grown to a population of 6,361 in approximately 1.8 square miles (4.7 km2). The lake remains the focal point of the greater Lake Stevens community for recreation and as “a symbol of our need to provide for a sustainable existence that will protect our natural environment”.
