Ravensdale, Washington - 98051


Set back at the base of Tiger Mountain, Ravensdale is a small town that was established back when coal mining was in high-demand in the area. Originally named for the local Leary Coal Company, the town of Leary has since been renamed Ravensdale, for the flocks of ravens that could be observed feeding on grain that had spilled from boxcars traveling on the railroad. The town was incorporated in 1913, but after a large explosion killed 31 men, the town was left by many immigrant miners and was disincorporated in the 1920s. Mining discontinued in Ravensdale completely in 1975, but still plays a big part in the history and daily life of the locals.



Common Wildlife

Ravensdale is a small town with a lot of vegetation and trees. This kind of environment is the best of both worlds when it comes to critters. Lots of natural geography mixed with humans and their garbage, pet food, and other things to get into. Most commonly dealt with in this area are bats, rodents, raccoons, opossums, and squirrels. Rats and mice are known to chew their way into attics, crawlspaces, or even living spaces. Raccoons and squirrels can rip and chew their way into attics and make cozy nests to have their babies in.  Bats are right at home in the dense trees of Ravensdale and frequently invite themselves into attics here as well. If you or a neighbor has an unwanted critter visitor, please refer to Critter Control of Seattle, for all of your pest control needs.


Wildlife Damage

Wildlife can be responsible for thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home. They can soil insulation with their urine and feces, damage drywall, chew holes in and out of your home. When critters gain access into your home, multiple diseases are introduced to your home. They are a health hazard to people and pets. Many times upon inspection, the smell is enough to identify the problem area. The fact of the matter is, everyone deals with wildlife. You are not alone. 206.431.6833
