Pest Control Services in East Boston, MA


Affectionately known as “Eastie” by locals, East Boston is home to around 45,000 residents. It once comprised five islands: Noddle’s, Hog’s, Governor’s, Bird, and Apple.

Development began on Noddle’s, which was separated by the Boston Harbor, and residents had to use paddle boats and ferries to visit it. In 1904, Massachusetts constructed the country’s first underwater streetcar tunnel, the MBTA Blue Line, to connect East Boston to the mainland. Now, you can take Route 1A to get across. 

Because of its original separation from the mainland, the city set up the East Boston Immigration Station here. Immigrants of Irish, Russian, Jewish, and Italian descent — including President John F. Kennedy’s great-grandfather — settled in East Boston, which was nicknamed Boston’s “Ellis Island”.

Today, East Boston is home to Logan International Airport and several historical and natural sights, like Piers Park, Suffolk Downs, Belle Isle Marsh Reservation, and Eagle Hill Historic District. Unfortunately, common pests like mosquitoes tend to congregate on land masses like this, and rats and mice are all too familiar.


Once an island surrounded by the Charles River and Massachusetts Bay, East Boston is home to various pests that thrive in the humid environment. The good news is that Greenhow Pest Control knows exactly how to identify and eliminate any pest problem in your East Boston home or business.

Using safe pest control techniques, we can get rid of rats and mice, ants, termites, or any other pest challenge that’s impacting your property or landscaping. Reach out today for help and say goodbye to your infestation worries.

  • Pest Control

    Whether it’s something as small as an ant or as shocking as a centipede, seeing small insects scurrying around your home is sure to send shivers up your spine. Unfortunately, eliminating these tiny creatures on your own is difficult since they come in through small cracks and crevices in the floors and walls.

  • Lawn Care

    Lawns are beautiful, but they can be notoriously finicky and their upkeep does require a lot of hard work. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, your green lawn will turn brown or yellow and you might not have any idea why. When taking care of your yard becomes a guessing game, it’s time to leave the hassle to the professionals at Greenhow.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    East Boston’s proximity to the water and nature guarantees beautiful views and a bustling downtown area, which also, unfortunately, guarantees pests like mosquitoes and ticks. The best way to ensure these unwanted pests don’t bother you during the warm spring and summer season is to get your property treated so that it’s protected all year long.

  • Plant Health Care

    Whether you have a green thumb or want to beautify your property, outdoor plants are a great option. But what do you do when your plants keep dying? This might be an issue caused by small pest infestations or poor soil conditions — whatever the reason, Greenhow can identify and treat any problem.

  • Rodent Control

    While they may look cute from far away, rodents like mice are among the list of things you don’t want near your home. Unfortunately, when summer begins to fade away and temperatures start to drop, rodents like these start their search for warm shelter — and, sometimes, this involves your home.

  • Termite Control

    Although small, termites can cause significant problems. Damage from these infestations can cost a lot of money and go unnoticed for years — which, in most cases, is when so much damage is done that you’ll wish you knew about it sooner. To avoid costly home repairs, it’s essential to have a termite control expert survey your home and identify any potential populations.

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!
– Michael K., Arlington, MA

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.
