Will 'attack spiders' rescue MLT building under siege?
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - Are giant spiders attacking Mountlake Terrace? It may look like one commercial building on 220th Street Southwest is under siege, but the spiders actually represent the defensive forces in this war. Hanging at the top corners of the 6806-220th St. S.W. building are nine bird deterrent "Attack Spiders," battery-operated plastic spiders that drop down an 18-inch string when activated by sound. The devices were purchased by a top-floor tenant of the building in order to fight off northern flickers, a type of woodpecker that has been the real enemy perpetrating the attack. "We first noticed the problem about a year ago," said Karen Oliver of Destination Marketing. "The woodpeckers would make holes in the veneer of the building, then sparrows or starlings would nest in the holes." With a prime view of the problem from her third-floor office, Oliver could watch the front-line skirmishes — the flickers pecking away at an exterior wall of the building. A case of 24 Attack Spiders was drafted in order to combat the flickers. But initial engagements started out poorly as spiders stationed outdoors at the top corners of the building began malfunctioning during poor weather. "The rain would get in through the spiders legs," explained Jennifer Rodriguez, another staff member at Destination Marketing. "So we made these ponchos for them." Plastic rain bonnets were attached to the top of the spiders, and now "they seem to be working," Rodriguez noted. Oliver and Rodriguez also confessed that at times the wind can activate the spiders into action. Settling on a war plan against the feathered invaders has been problematic for building caretakers. The flicker is one of 800 protected species on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, and killing the bird is illegal. Before purchasing the Attack Spiders, a few other battle tactics were deployed, including streamers and Mylar balloons. "The birds would just peck the balloons," chuckled Rodriguez. Now that the Attack Spiders have proven their mettle, the generals have no qualms about sending more to the front lines; Destination Marketing has 15 more spiders in a box awaiting deployment. Destination Marketing may not be only ones satisfied with the Attack Spiders' battle effectiveness; the manufacturer is reporting that their product is currently out ofstock and no more are available until late May. – Story and photos by Doug Petrowski The post Will ‘attack spiders' rescue MLT building under siege? appeared first on MLTnews.com.

Would-be burglar may have been inspired by 911 system outage
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - A seven-hour 911 system outage may have been a factor in the decision of a local man to attempt a break-in of an ex-girlfriend's home in Mountlake Terrace on April 10. But despite the 911 system not working, the quick action of neighbors summoned police to the scene and the suspect was apprehended and booked into the Snohomish County Jail for attempted burglary. At about 2:30 a.m., a Mountlake Terrace officer returning to the police station noticed an individual attempting to use an emergency phone at the front door of the building. When contacted, the person told the officer that his father had someone corner in a backyard in the 23500 block of 52nd Avenue West. When police arrived at the scene they found the suspect hiding in some bushes "The suspect in this case is very well known and has a lengthy criminal history going back many years," said Mountlake Terrace Police Department Commander Doug Hansen. "Most recently he has had an on-going domestic violence history with an ex-girlfriend that lives near the reporting party. We believe he had tried to break into the ex's home that night, got scared off her property and hid in the neighbor's yard where he was eventually caught." The suspected was charged with attempted residential burglary and multiple counts of violating a court order. He remains in jail on bail totaling $152,500. The seven-hour 911 system outage throughout the region during the early morning hours of April 10 was caused by a technical error by a third-party vendor, officials from CenturyLink said. SNOCOM 911 reported their systems were working again around 6:30 a.m. on the day of the problem. – By Doug Petrowski The post Would-be burglar may have been inspired by 911 system outage appeared first on MLTnews.com.
