Pest Control Services in Back Bay Boston, MA


Back Bay is a Boston neighborhood that sits southwest of Beacon Hill and the city’s downtown. Today, the Back Bay neighborhood is a shopping and dining destination featuring wide, tree-lined avenues.

The traditional brick townhouses and Federal style mansions give this area a sophisticated vibe. But before Back Bay became a tourist’s must-visit destination, it was a 19th-century filling project built on reclaimed land in the Charles River basin.

Once a resident-only neighborhood, Back Bay is now home to commercial buildings with plenty of downtown shops and hotels that lure thousands of tourists every year. However, because of its location on the Charles River, locals and tourists alike have become familiar with common waterside pests.


Although much of the Back Bay area has been renovated to match the in-demand luxurious lifestyle of its residents, unwanted pests like centipedes and rodents still make their way inside homes and businesses.

Whether you live in an apartment or run a streetside cafe, the last thing you want is a pest problem — which is where Greenhow comes in. Using earth-friendly methods, we can solve any and all of your pest concerns.

  • Pest Control

    Are you noticing roaches, spiders, or ants in your home? No matter the pest, you don’t want these small creatures in or around your property. Unfortunately, it can be tough to combat them because they can proliferate so quickly. Luckily, Greenhow is MAA-certified and uses safe methods to quickly eradicate any pest infestation, no matter how big or small.

  • Lawn Care

    Everyone loves coming home to a freshly manicured lawn, which is why so many homeowners work hard to create a beautiful front yard. But sometimes, your hard work goes unnoticed, and lawns turn from that emerald green to a crunchy yellow. Instead of struggling to figure out what’s wrong with your yard, let the pros at Greenhow keep your entire property healthy all year long.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitoes and ticks are a seasonal problem, but that doesn’t mean you have to get used to them. In fact, it’s better if you don’t: These pesky pests are known to carry dangerous diseases like West Nile virus and Lyme disease, which can be hazardous to both people and pets. The best thing you can do is get your property treated every summer to avoid dealing with them ever again.

  • Plant Health Care

    People aren’t the only ones who suffer from pesky insects and unwanted infestations: Our plants do, too. And unfortunately, many of them are vulnerable to hungry pests like beetles, snails, and caterpillars. If you’ve begun noticing bitten edges and yellowing leaves, then it’s time to get your garden treated so your plants can grow peacefully once again.

  • Rodent Control

    When the colder months begin to come around, rodents like rats and mice will search for a warm place to build a shelter. Unfortunately, this often means homes and buildings—and since rodents can pass on diseases like salmonella, their presence can be dangerous to your and your family’s health.

  • Termite Control

    Termites may be tiny, but the damage they cause to homes and buildings can be massive. And since these infestations can go unnoticed for years, it’s safe to say that termites are a home’s silent killer. That’s why it’s wise to work with a termite control expert who can inspect your home and check for any existing populations before irreversible damage is done.

Boston Local, Cured My Ant Problem

I have kids and pets so I wanted to avoid the crazy chemicals while still getting rid of the ants that had raided the cat food bowl and then made them selves at home in our bathroom. GreenHow was easy to deal with, prompt, and quickly found the source of my ant problem… and got rid of the ants. They are now my pest control company of choice!

I now have a go-to exterminator!

They came out very quickly (one business day from when I called), were thorough in their investigation, and gave us an incredibly reasonable quote for pest control for other “guests” that we have like carpenter ants.  I was very surprised at their low initial and quarterly costs compared to their high level of service and commitment to using natural products.
– Kathy R., Woburn, MA

Great Service - Super Smart.

Sean Grenhow has without doubt the best of business ethics. He came on time.  He was intrepid in finding the problem, did a thorough search, gave me lots of information – and good news- charged me not one penny and left after a good 20-25 minutes.  I recommend him and his extremely knowledgeable service wholeheartedly.
– Alexandra H., Newton, MA

Honest and Smart

…the best experience of my life in calling an exterminator.  Sean is a great guy.  Honest.  Avoids toxins.  Smart.  GreenHow is what you should want to deal with pests.
