Bellevue is the fifth largest city in Washington, with a population of more than 130,000. It is the high-tech and retail center of the Eastside, with more than 130,000 jobs and a skyline of gleaming high-rises. Healthy, vibrant neighborhoods are the city’s greatest asset. Working with residents to protect that asset is the mission and the daily business of the Neighborhood Outreach Team.
Bellevue’s vision of a “city in a park,” the Lake to Lake Trail connects Lake Sammamish in the east to Lake Washington in the west with over 800 acres of parkland, boggy wetlands, fir forests and farms. The trails are mostly flat and well labeled, and you can enter or exit from any of the nine parks along the route. Spy blue herons wading in wetlands at Mercer Slough, enjoy salmon splashing in Kelsey Creek, and watch as Bambi and friends prance through Weowna Park.
Newport Hills, covering a plateau between Coal Creek and Lake Washington, was nearly fully developed when the city annexed it in 1992. The Lake Heights and Newport Hills neighborhoods are cohesive communities, featuring a wide variety of housing types. Both neighborhoods enjoy a strong sense of community, and both are represented by long-standing, active neighborhood associations.
Newport Hills’ single-family and multifamily neighborhoods are generally oriented toward the retail center on 119th Avenue Southeast. On the west, Newport Hills is separated from I-405 by steep ravines and tree-covered hills. To the east, the neighborhood is bordered by the 146-acre Coal Creek Natural Area.
Once a secluded area of woods and wetlands, Newport was either a home or migratory corridor for an abundance of wildlife, including deer, coyotes, mountain beavers, raccoons, possums, squirrels, red-tail hawks and eagles. The Coal Creek and Newport Hills waterways once supported runs of salmon and steelhead, but urban development and past coal mining in the area have reduced the streams’ ability to sustain fish populations.

Natural Green Eco-Pest Control methods that are family and pet friendly.
RODENT CONTROL SERVICES– Most rodents encountered within the Bellevue 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 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 homes and Commercial buildings. Ampm Pest Control specializes in rat, rodent and mouse control in the city of Bellevue. Ampm exterminators are trained to inspect and fix rodent issues, assess rat infestations and plan control measures to eradicate the rats or mice.
ANT CONTROL SERVICES– 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 Bellevue.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 nuisance ants found in Bellevue that roam throughout homes and commercial business buildings include the “Odorous House Ant” and Pavement ants commonly known as little black sugar ants.
Local Bed bugs Control Service:Killing all bed bugs on your bed frame and headboard. Normally this would be done by a pest control professional. All bed bugs in the typical infestation are located on the mattress, box spring and bed frame. You’ve encased the mattress and box spring and taken care of that problem. Now you have to make sure that your bed frame is bed bug free. Vacuuming alone won’t do this. Vacuuming can remove many bed bug adults and nymphs, but it isn’t very good at removing eggs. For this job you’ll need insecticide sprays and possibly dusts to treat every crevice and void in your bed. Remember that insecticides can be hazardous if you don’t follow label directions. Read the whole label before spraying or dusting. The label directions are the law and failure to follow the label not only puts you and your family at risk, it is against the law. Homemade sprays, by the way, are usually less safe than commercial insecticides.
COMMERCIAL EASTSIDE PESTS CONTROL SERVICES:Ampm Pest Control Professionals remove Bed bugs,Rats Spiders, Earwigs, Cockroaches, Food Pests(gnats), Clothes Moths, Yellow Jackets, Bees, Termites and more.
While business booms downtown, much of Bellevue retains a small-town feel, with thriving, woodsy neighborhoods and a vast network of green spaces and recreational facilities that keep people calling the place “a city in a park.” The city’s schools are consistently rated among the best in the country.
The city spans more than 31 square miles between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, and is a short drive from the Cascade Mountains. People can kayak within sight of downtown in the Mercer Slough Nature Park, a 320-acre wetland preserve.
The population is growing and becoming more diverse. According to the census, minorities constituted 41 percent of Bellevue’s population in 2010, and more than 50 languages are now spoken by children in Bellevue public schools.
