Pest Control Services in Riverside, MA


Riverside is a primarily residential neighborhood located along the Charles River. 

It is bordered by the area’s most bustling commercial centers — Harvard Square (which sits west of the Harvard Yard in Mid-Cambridge) and Central Square (just south of Riverside and north of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus). 

Due to its proximity to Harvard University, most of the college’s students reside in Riverside, where there’s a population of around 11,000 people in 3,300 households. Riverside is also home to some of Harvard’s and Cambridge College’s academic and administrative facilities. 

Riverside offers plenty to do for students, young professionals, and families as it’s nestled between some of the most lively parts of Cambridge. Locals spend time at the parks, the Cambridge Community Center, which hosts community programs for all ages, and the Charles Square Farmers’ Market.

There are also plenty of restaurants and coffee shops, like Hokkaido Ramen, Zinneken’s Belgian Waffles, Cafe Sushi, Alive & Kicking Lobsters, the Coast Cafe, and Andala Coffee House.


Riverside has something special for just about everybody. There’s no shortage of things to do and see or places to get together with friends. However, living on the Charles River can bring its own set of problems — more specifically, pest-related problems, like mosquitos, ticks, termites, and much more.

The good news is that Greenhow Pest Control is native to the Boston area and knows exactly how to combat any type of pest. 

  • Pest Control

    While it’s true that bugs are common to the area, that doesn’t mean you have to tolerate them in or around your home. With Greenhow’s comprehensive and safe commercial and residential pest treatments, you can live confidently inside and outside without worrying about unwanted pests like spiders, ants, and flies.

  • Termite Control

    The worst thing about termites is that they work silently — in fact, you might not even know they’re living within your walls until years later! And by then, it might be too late and cost you hundreds of dollars in repairs.

    Instead of worrying about termites, be proactive. Have a termite control pro from Greenhow survey your home every year for potential populations.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    No matter the time of year, no property owner wants to deal with mosquitos and ticks. So instead of worrying about ticks in your yard and itching mosquito bites every day, consult the experts to find out about treatment options. Greenhow’s mosquito and tick control methods are entirely safe for the whole family, including the kids and the dog.

  • Plant Health Care

    If you’re working on your green thumb by adding plants that beautify your property, the outdoor professionals at Greenhow can help you implement a plant health care program that will keep plants healthy and thriving for years to come.

  • Rodent Control

    Seeking warm shelter during the harsh Massachusetts winter, rodents like rats and mice will enter attic and wall spaces through roof-height treelines. Unfortunately, removing rodents from any type of building is no easy task, which is why it’s best left to the experts at Greenhow.

  • Lawn Care

    Everybody wants a beautiful lawn, but obtaining one doesn’t come easy. If you don’t have the time or the knowledge for your lawn’s upkeep, the experts at Greenhow can help keep it beautiful and healthy.

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.
