Pest Control Services in Charlestown, MA


As home to Paul Revere’s midnight ride —“The British are coming!”— Charlestown can boast many historical points of interest like the Freedom Trail, the USS Constitution, and the Bunker Hill Monument. Founded in 1628, it’s the oldest subsection of Boston. 

However, it had a history long before the Puritans settled down: The area was initially called Mishawum by the local Native American tribe, which means “great springs.”

Today, Charlestown is a melting pot of young professionals and upper-middle-class families. It maintains a solid Irish identity due to the influx of Irish immigrants who arrived during the Great Irish Famine in the 1840s.

Over the past twenty years, Charlestown has expanded dramatically into a primarily residential neighborhood with plenty of commercial buildings along the waterfront. With lots of muggy weather and temperature fluctuations, residents in Charlestown do face a range of pest problems.


When people build densely populated cities so close to the water, there are opportunities for pests to thrive. Unfortunately, in Charlestown, this can mean termites, mosquitoes, and rodents. Luckily, Greenhow Pest Control is native to the Boston area and knows exactly the kinds of pests you might encounter.

  • Pest Control

    Finding the right pest control company that can get the job done can be a challenge, whether the problem involves spiders, ants, or western conifer seed bugs. You want an experienced team that knows the area and the types of pests that may frequent it—and most importantly, how to combat these small insects from ever coming inside again. That’s where Greenhow comes in. 

  • Lawn Care

    Pest control is essential, but so is ensuring that your lawn gets the best care possible. Unfortunately, lawns can be complicated to keep up with: They require just the right soil type, water intake, and nutrients to stay green throughout the warmer months. When this feels like an impossible task, Greenhow can handle the job so you don’t have to.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    No matter the time of year, nobody wants to deal with mosquitoes or ticks. That’s why so many homeowners and business owners opt for getting their properties treated year-round. This way, families can spend all day outside, and customers can enjoy window shopping or dining outdoors without worry. 

  • Plant Health Care

    Adding plants and landscaping is a great way to beautify any property, but aftercare requires plenty of attention. Plants begin to droop at the slightest sign of distress, which can be caused by low levels of water, the wrong nutrients, or a pest infestation. However, plants, flowers, and gardens require a special type of treatment to keep them pest-free.

  • Rodent Control

    Unfortunately, rodents are notorious for building nests in and around people’s homes. If there ever comes a time when you find one on your property, it’s essential to remove it right away. But the last thing anybody wants is to expose their families to potential diseases like salmonella, which rodents carry, so it’s best to leave the work to the experts at Greenhow.

  • Termite Control

    Did you know that a termite infestation can go unnoticed for years? It’s true — and by the time you do find the infestation, it might cost you thousands of dollars in repairs to remove their colony and fix the damage they’ve done. That’s why it’s a good idea to work with an experienced termite control expert who can identify any potential infestations in or around your home.

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.
