Pest Control in Wellington-Harrington, MA


Wellington-Harrington is a small yet densely-populated neighborhood of Cambridge. There are currently about 10,000 residents in this compact area, making it the Cambridge neighborhood with the second-highest population density. 

Wellington-Harrington is conveniently located near Inman Square and Kendall Square. Inman Square is one of the most popular commercial areas on the northwestern corner and provides easy access to highly-rated restaurants like The Druid, Puritan & Company, Moona, Trina’s Starlight Lounge, and Oleana.

Kendall Square is a nearby neighborhood that offers New American and globally-styled restaurants, museums, parks, and theaters. 

Aside from its dense population, Wellington-Harrington is also home to the highest number of immigrants in Cambridge. About 40% of its residents are born outside of the United States and over half speak a language other than English at home.

This diverse, lively area is between some of Cambridge’s most bustling neighborhoods and hotspots, making it an exciting place to live.


Wellington-Harrington may be small, but there’s plenty to do here. Unfortunately, due to a large number of homes converted into apartments, these tree- and brick-lined streets often invite unwanted guests, like termites, rodents, and other pests.

Luckily, Greenhow Pest Control is native to the Boston area and can identify any pest infestation, no matter how big or small. 

  • 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

    Termite infestations can go unnoticed for several years, which is precisely why every home or building owner should have annual termite inspections. Unfortunately, not everybody is savvy enough to recognize the slow growth of a termite infestation. With years of experience, Greenhow Pest Control specializes in identifying these tricky pests.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

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.
