Pest Control Services in Brighton, MA


Named after its British counterpart in 1807, Brighton is a suburb of Boston that initially belonged to Cambridge. At the time, the neighborhood was known as “Little Cambridge,” and flourished as a rural town with a small commercial center. In the early 19th century, Little Cambridge became the independent town of Brighton.

In 1820, the horticulture industry began to boom in Brighton, significantly affecting the town’s economy. For the next couple of decades, Brighton quickly became one of Boston’s most quintessential gardening neighborhoods. 

Today, Brighton is surrounded by Cambridge, Watertown, Newton, and Brookline. With traditional brick homes and modern restaurants, it’s a mix of the old and new. Its northern section sits along the Charles River, which can, unfortunately, bring in many unwanted pests.


Known for its rich gardening history, Brighton is home to plenty of college students, and, unfortunately, pests. When you’re dealing with these problems, you need a pest control company that you can trust.

The good news is that Greenhow has decades of experience helping property owners get rid of pests in the Boston area. We know what kinds of pests plague this area and how to deal with them safely using eco-friendly techniques.

  • Pest Control

    It’s not uncommon to find pests like spiders, centipedes, and ants throughout Brighton — but when these small creatures make their way inside of your home, it’s time to take action. Whether they’ve come through the walls, the floors, or your windows, Greenhow can identify and treat any type of infestation.

  • Lawn Care

    Front lawns can beautify any property — but when you don’t have the time to care for yours, that lush green grass begins to brown and get overtaken by weeds and pests. The professionals at Greenhow can help. With decades of experience in pest, plant, and lawn care, our expert team can keep your property healthy all year long.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    All anybody wants to do when the summer months come around is enjoy time outside, but mosquitoes and ticks can quickly put any outdoor fun to a halt. These small pests can cause itchy and potentially dangerous bites to adults, children, and pets, which is why it’s a good idea to have your property treated once per year.

  • Plant Health Care

    Adding plants to your property is the easiest way to enhance curb appeal, but keeping those plants happy and healthy can be a huge job in itself. With problems like soil health and small pests like grubs, it can take hours every week just to keep up with your garden or landscape’s needs.

  • Rodent Control

    One of the most upsetting things about a rodent infestation is that these creatures can ruin your home’s infrastructure and electrical wiring — all while potentially spreading diseases and bacteria like salmonella. So while rats and mice might be out of sight, it’s essential that you eradicate them before they begin breeding.

  • Termite Control

    Although a termite infestation can work so quietly that it goes unnoticed for years, these tiny insects can do significant damage to your home, which could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. The best way to avoid an invisible termite infestation is to work with a termite control expert who can identify existing populations and safely eliminate them.

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.
