Pest Control Services in Boston, MA


The capital of Massachusetts, Boston is the most populous city in the state. But before this bustling area came to be what it is today, it was initially just a small section of the Shawmut Peninsula, founded in 1630 by a handful of Puritan settlers. 

The Shawmut Peninsula was the site of several historical events like the Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre. But as more settlers came overseas, Boston quickly became a hub for manufacturing, education, and culture. Today, the city has expanded beyond the peninsula and attracts millions of tourists each year. 

Boston is nicknamed the city of neighborhoods because of its collection of 23 designated subsections. Despite its large size, more than a quarter of the city is water, making the environment humid and a welcome environment for insects.

Combined with many century-old buildings, which can also attract bugs, the residents of Boston are no stranger to common pests like mosquitoes, ticks, rodents, and much more.


Towns traditionally used for farming typically have plenty of acreage—but that also means plenty of insects, rodents, and other pests. But with Greenhow’s comprehensive approach and years of expertise, you can trust that these pest control experts can control any and all types of unwanted pests in homes across Medford.

  • Pest Control

    While pests like spiders, cockroaches, and centipedes may be a common sighting, that doesn’t mean you ever want to see them in your home. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to get rid of small insects like these since they usually come through small cracks and crevices in the wall and floor.

  • Lawn Care

    Everybody wants a beautiful lawn, but obtaining one can be a challenge: You have to worry about the water intake, the soil levels, and of course, any potential pests. The truth is that lawns are very demanding, which means they can turn brown within just a couple of days. However, a pro can keep yours green all year long.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Boston is an exciting city where families and young professionals alike appreciate spending time outside. Dining alfresco is a staple, and having outdoor living space to enjoy is a luxury anybody should take advantage of. But if mosquitoes and ticks are ruining your outdoor experience, it’s time to treat your property so they stay away year-round. 

  • Plant Health Care

    Landscaping is the best way to enhance your property’s curb appeal, but if your green thumb isn’t as green as you’d hoped, you might be in for a surprise when it comes to aftercare. Plants require nutrients, water, and sunlight to thrive — but their health can be thrown into a complete spin if pests like beetles and snails invade.

  • Rodent Control

    The unfortunate truth is that when the colder months arrive, so do the rodents. Rats and mice begin looking for warm shelter so they can stay comfortable during the winter. Often, this means dwelling in your home’s attic, basement, or wall space. Removing rodents from any property is no easy task, which is why it’s best left to the professionals.

  • Termite Control

    Did you know that termites build their colonies every day until they die? This means that a colony can expand several feet in just a couple of years. The worst part is that termite infestations can go unnoticed that entire time, and by the time you do find the infestation, the colony may have caused damage beyond repair. That’s why it’s necessary to have a termite control expert survey and inspect your home once a year.

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.
