Pest Control in Kendall Square, MA


Kendall Square is home to about 50,000 residents and growing — and rightfully so: It’s quickly become one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in Cambridge, thanks to several tech companies and expansive MIT buildings like the Stata Center.

The area is populated by students and young professionals in the tech field who are often out visiting bars, cafes, and restaurants in between work and study. Some local favorites include:

However, there is one thing that most Kendall Square residents, workers, and business owners are all too familiar with: the pests that come with living by the riverside. 


Whether it’s something as annoying as ants or as elusive as centipedes, the Greenhow Pest Control team will take care of the issue quickly, safely, and professionally. No matter the size of the infestation, Greenhow can identify and eradicate any pest problem using eco-friendly methods that are safe for the whole family.

  • Pest Control

    The problem with pests like ants and crickets is that even if you’ve only seen one, the chances are that more are following close behind. Using pheromone trails to find shelter and food, pests like these are pretty challenging to get rid of without the proper expertise and materials.

    Luckily, Greenhow knows how to find these pests’ entry points and prevent them from ever coming in again.

  • Termite Control

    Did you know that termites infiltrate thousands of homes in the United States every year? Whether it’s the seasonal swarm in spring or these insects begin building their colonies in your walls, termites are frustrating, dangerous, and expensive to deal with.

    As a homeowner, the best thing you can do is get your property surveyed every year for any potential termite populations.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks may seem unavoidable come spring and summer, but you might be surprised to find out that you don’t have to share your backyard with them.

    With annual treatment around your property, you can keep these pesky pests away. Rely on the team at Greenhow to help your family and pets remain safe and bite-free every summer season.

  • Plant Health Care

    Whether you prefer shrubs around your property or have a private garden full of flowers and vegetables, you know that your plants require special care to stay healthy and thriving all year long.

    However, this can be hard when common garden pests like slugs, caterpillars, and beetles are present — but you can get rid of them quickly thanks to Greenhow’s special plant health care treatment.

  • Rodent Control

    When the colder months settle in around the New England area, rodents like rats and mice will do just about anything to keep warm. They will often build nests in an attic, basement, or wall spaces of homes and buildings — and they’re not easy to get rid of. Luckily, Greenhow’s always here to help.

  • Lawn Care

    Your lawn is your home’s first impression, so it’s essential to make sure it always looks its best. Unfortunately, lawns are sometimes finicky and can begin to yellow at the slightest problems, whether because of nutrient levels or pest and disease issues.

    Whatever the problem is, with our expertise in lawn care, we can keep it healthy year-round.

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.
