Pest Control Services in Melrose, MA


Since its settlement in the middle of the 18th century, Melrose has offered its residents a desirable compromise between the crowded metropolis of Boston and the frontier of rural exurbia.

Melrose is predominantly residential with exquisite Victorian homes dating from the late 1800s. Beyond being a city of homes, Melrose has a long-standing tradition of being self-sufficient enough to support residents’ housing, education, employment, health care needs, and shopping for entertainment and recreation as well as leisure needs.

In many ways, Melrose remains an ideal city to live in and offers many benefits such as great schools, cultural facilities, and plenty of open space. However, Boston’s moist climate also affect Melrose because pests are attracted to the wet, temperate environment.


Boston’s cold winters and humid summers attract pests, and the moist, sea-facing environment makes Melrose a perfect breeding ground.

Greenhow Pest Control wants to help create a better environment for everyone by eliminating pests from your home and place of business. We offer a complete pest control solution that protects your properties from pests and creates a safer environment for you and your family.

  • Pest Control

    Rodents are a common pest in Massachusetts. They chew on wires and insulation, which can cause fires and damage to your home’s structure. Meanwhile, termites eat away at the wooden areas of your house, causing damage to floors, walls, doors, windowsills, and more.

    Greenhow offers pest control services throughout the Melrose, Massachusetts area. As an independent, locally-owned company, we offer affordable, environmentally safe, and successful pest elimination techniques.

  • Lawn Care

    Lawns are the perfect place for pests to hide, especially if you have an overgrown lawn or live in an area with a lot of wildlife. Rodents love to chew on your plants and spread disease while mosquitoes carry West Nile Virus.

    Greenhow pest control provides full-service lawn care services that include pest and grub. We use environmentally friendly products, so you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals being used near your family or pets.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos are a nuisance and can spread disease. They’re also more active during the day than at night, so you have less time to enjoy your outdoor activities without being bitten.

    Greenhow Pest Control offers effective mosquito control services in Melrose, MA. Our technicians will inspect your property for any standing water or other breeding grounds for mosquitos and then apply treatments as needed.

  • Plant Health Care

    Your plants are looking a little worse for wear. It’s not just the leaves that need your attention but also the roots. The soil needs to be healthy and free from pests in order to nourish your plants properly.

    Greenhow Pest Control is here to help you protect your plants from pests. We’ll also help you replenish the soil’s health so your plants can thrive.

  • Rodent Control

    Nobody wants to see rodents scurrying through their floorboards or hear them scratching in the walls, but when you see these warning signs, you need to be proactive.

    That’s where Greenhow comes in. We know how to identify rat and mouse populations and remove them safely and humanely from your property.

  • Termite Control

    Termites are a significant problem in the Boston area, but it’s hard to know if you have them. The best way to find out is with a termite inspection. But these inspections can be expensive and time-consuming.

    Greenhow offers affordable termite inspections for Melrose, MA residents that only take about an hour of your day. Our inspectors will come out and do a thorough assessment of your property and create a customized prevention plan to keep your home pest-free.

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.
