With nearly 130,000 people calling it home, Kent is the sixth largest city in Washington State. Like many cities in the Puget Sound area, Kent began as a farming hub in the mid- to late-1800s. After Boeing decided to build the Aerospace Center in the Valley almost a century later, Kent became a popular destination for many other companies, turning it into one of the largest manufacturing and distribution centers in the country.
Today, Kent has grown into a sprawling city with a wide variety of locales. From beautiful residential areas on both the East Hill and West Hill to the dense industrial area in the Valley, from its beautiful parks and lakes to a bustling downtown center, Kent has something for everyone. Unfortunately, that variety comes with a diverse range of pests!
