RODENT CONTROL – Most rodents encountered within the Marysville 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 Marysville. 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 Marysville. 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 Marysville are filthy nuisances that roam throughout our homes. These species include the “Odorous House Ant” and others.

Marysville is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. The population was 60,020 at the 2010 census. Marysville is known as “The Strawberry City,” as it was once surrounded by numerous strawberry farms in its earlier days. The landscape includes Mount Pilchuck, whose 5300-foot-high peak can be seen from various points in the city.
Since 2000, continuing large residential, commercial, and industrial growth, combined with annexations of territory and people, has transformed this city, increasing its population by about 140% over the 2000 total of slightly more than 25,000. Marysville ranks as the second-largest city in the county after Everett.
Marysville’s European-American settlement and history began with the signing of the Point Elliott Treaty in 1855 between the United States and the Tulalip people to establish a reservation for them and allow settlement of others on their former territory. After the treaty was signed, the local area had opened for settlement. The timber industry quickly moved in, staking several claims during the 1860s in the area that would become Marysville. The loggers and the nearby Tulalip reservation provided ample customers for trade, and in 1872 the federal government authorized a small trading post. James P. Comeford and his wife, Maria, moved to the area after he was appointed proprietor of the trading post by the government.
In 1874, Comeford paid $450 for logged timber claims consisting of 1,280 acres (5.2 km2) of land. Four years later, he built a new store with living quarters attached, and a small dock with a plank road called Front Street. Mrs. Comeford began teaching classes to local children and her husband ran the post office, both provided out of their home.
Little growth took place in Marysville until the mid-1880s. The first saw mill opened in 1887, followed by three additional mills over the next few years. The railroad was constructed to town in 1889, which was followed by more growth. It connected the timber industry and the area to other markets.
Marysville was officially incorporated on March 20, 1891. On December 30, 2009 it annexed property and population, becoming the second largest city in Snohomish County, with a total population of 60,020. ~ Wikipedia
More History of Marysville from City website:
To trace the origins of Marysville, today a prosperous, diversified north Snohomish County city of 60,020, you need to return to 1872 and its humble beginnings as a trading post. James P. Comeford, proprietor of the original trading post and founder of Marysville, and wife Maria, first arrived in the area in 1878, and paved the way for many pioneer families to follow. The Comefords lived on the neighboring Tulalip reservation for six years, traveling the waterways and seeing to the work of the 18 logging camps.
The Marysville Historical Society tells that in 1878 John Stafford, Louis Thomas and Truman Ireland and Capt. William Renton, traders in timber, wanted to sell 1,280 acres, the land that became the town of Marysville, and Mr. Comeford was willing to buy. He paid $450. He then built a store with living quarters attached and a small dock with a plank road called Front Street. By 1879 education became a need of the small but growing community, and Mrs. Comeford began teaching classes in her home. A year later, Marysville opened a Post Office with Mr. Comeford as the first postmaster. The first saw mill opened in 1887. Mr. Comeford designed the original town in 1894 and a year later the platted area encompassed 9 blocks from the Tulalip Reservation to Liberty Street.
The Comefords and their family’s store did good business with the loggers and Indians in the area, and additional settlers arrived by steamboat to farm or work in the busy mills that furnished the lumber for most early town buildings. The railroad tracks were laid through the town in 1889, which brought many new residents to Marysville. In 1891, James Comeford incorporated the town, which became a 4th Class city, and Mark Swinnerton was elected Marysville’s first mayor. Logging was the primary industry at this time. The Stimson Logging Company was formed in 1891. This became a fairly large company and contributed much to Marysville’s trade.
The first City Hall was built in 1901. Crystal Lodge No. 122 F & AM was founded in 1902. 1906 saw the first high school welcome new students. In 1907, the public library was established, while the first high school class graduated. In 1908, the Afton Chapter of Eastern Star and the Alumni Association of the High School were formed. In 1908, the Chamber of Commerce organized, and opened its doors to local businesses. During the Roaring Twenties, the City earned the nickname “The Strawberry City” in recognition of the area’s overabundance of the sweet, fruity berries, which are celebrated — and eaten — annually in June with the Strawberry Festival and Grand Parade. Marysville has come a long way in its first 100 years. Time will tell what the next 100 years will bring, but as we celebrate our first 100 years we should take time occasionally to look back and give thanks to the pioneers of this area and what they accomplished.
