Cascade provides pest control in SHoreline for carpenter ants, mouse/mice problems, rats, beetles, moths, flies, termites, wasps, spiders, yellow jackets, hornets and most any pest. To get rid of rats, bugs, insects, spiders or other pests and keep them gone, you need an expert exterminator who can do the job quickly, safely, effectively. We’ve been taking care of people’s residences and commercial properties for over 35 years in Shoreline 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 Auburn 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 Auburn. 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 Auburn. 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 Auburn are filthy nuisances that roam throughout our homes. These species include the “Odorous House Ant” and others.

Shoreline is a city in King County, Washington, United States, 9 miles (14 km) north of Downtown Seattle bordering the northern Seattle city limits. As of the 2010 census, the population was 53,007, making it the 20th largest city in the state of Washington.
Based on per capita income, one of the more reliable measures of affluence, Shoreline ranks 91st of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked. ~ Wikipedia
History of Shoreline, WA
Shoreline’s natural beauty, abundant resources and location – within reach of Seattle, yet far enough away to be considered semi-rural – were recognized by the first people to live in the area. Those same characteristics continue to describe Shoreline today.
Great Northern train at Richmond Beach StationEarly accounts of Shoreline tell how Native Americans traveled along the shores of Puget Sound and local streams collecting sword fern and kinnikinic at Richmond Beach, and wild cranberries at what are now Ronald Bog and Twin Ponds parks. Controlled fires were set in the Richmond Highlands and North City areas to create meadows for the cultivation of certain wild plants and to provide inviting, open spaces for small game.
As railroad fever gripped the Northwest in the 1880s, speculators planned towns in anticipation of the transcontinental railroad route. Among these was Richmond Beach, platted in 1890. The arrival of the Great Northern Railroad in Richmond Beach in 1891 spurred the growth of the small town and increased the pace of development in the wooded uplands.
Construction of the Seattle-Everett Interurban line through Shoreline in 1906, and the paving of the North Trunk Road with bricks in 1913, made travel to and from Shoreline easier, which increased suburban growth. People could live on a large lot, raise much of their own food and still be able to take the Interurban, train or, beginning in 1914, the bus, to work or high school in Seattle. Children could attend one of two local elementary schools, and general stores provided most of the goods that could not be grown at home. Local produce from fruit orchards, chicken farms and strawberry crops could be shipped to the city via the Interurban or the train. The Fish family’s Queen City Poultry Ranch on Greenwood at 159th was a prosperous chicken farm which attracted many visitors curious about scientific farming techniques.
Aurora Avenue circa 1940During the early twentieth century, Shoreline attracted large developments drawn by its rural yet accessible location. These included the Highlands and Seattle Golf Club (ca. 1908) and the Firland Tuberculosis Sanitarium (ca. 1911) which is now Crista Ministries. Commercial centers formed around the Interurban stops at Ronald (175th and Aurora) and Richmond Highlands (185th and Aurora). Car travel had broadened the settlement pattern considerably by the mid-1920s. Although large tracts of land had been divided into smaller lots in the 1910s in anticipation of future development, houses were still scattered.
The Great Depression and World War II (1930-1945) slowed the pace of housing development. During the Depression, many Shoreline families eked out a living on land they had purchased in better times. By the late 1930s, commercial development concentrated along Aurora which saw steadily increasing use as part of the region’s primary north-south travel route – U.S. Highway 99.
Ronald School 1912. Today the home of the Shoreline Historical Museum. Traffic on 99 swelled, particularly after the closing of the Interurban in 1939. During World War II, building materials were rationed and private housing construction virtually stopped. The only major development in Shoreline during the war was the Naval Hospital (now Fircrest). At its peak in 1945, the hospital housed over 2,000 patients and 600 staff members.
With the end of the war came a tremendous demand for family housing. The late 1940s saw large housing developments such as Ridgecrest (N.E. 165th to 155th, 5th to 10th) spring up seemingly overnight. Schools ran on double shifts as families with young children moved into the new homes. In the late 1940s, business leaders and residents began to see Shoreline as a unified region rather than scattered settlements concentrated at Interurban stops and railroad accesses.
In 1944, the name “Shoreline” was used for the first time to describe the school district. Coined by a student at the Lake City Elementary School, it defined a community which went from city line to county line and from the shore of Puget Sound to the shore of Lake Washington.
Finally in 1995 Shoreline officially became a city being incorporated by King County. Today with almost 54,000 residents, Shoreline is Washington’s 20th largest city. ~ City of Shoreline
