Sammamish, Washington - 98029, 98074, 98075


Sammamish is a Snoqualmie name derived from samma, meaning “the sound of the blue crane” and mish, meaning “river”.  It is a young city officially incorporated in 1999.  The major industry in the area was logging until the 1930’s. The first Europeans arrived in the late 19th century and established a trio of resorts by the 1930's.  It is home to nine parks and 4 resorts on the lake.  The Four Seasons of Beaver Lake claim to fame was that Clint Eastwood was a lifeguard teacher there in 1953. The plateau remained a mostly rural area until suburban homes, shopping centers, and schools were built in the 1970's and 1980's.

Wildlife DamageMole or Vole Damage? Critter Control of Seattle knows!

Moles can damage a nicely groomed lawn by tunneling under the surface after insects, insect larva, or grubs. They push mounds of dirt up to the service making volcano shaped eye sores. Moles are solitary and territorial and generally stay in their own burrow system which can be a network of tunnels that range from 5-8 inches below the surface and up to six feet below. Moles do remove many damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens however in doing so they disfigure lawns, and destroy flower beds. The fact of the matter is, everyone deals with wildlife. You are not alone. 206.431.6833
