Pest Control Services in Acton, MA


Acton is a small town with a population of nearly 11 thousand residents. Even so, it has a rich history as one of the most water-dependent cities in Massachusetts.

Acton has nine drumlins, which are hills composed of glacial till from the last Ice Age nearly 12 thousand years ago. Because of this, Acton was popularly used for industrialized water mills and selling ice to surrounding areas thanks to its kettle ponds.

Today, almost all of Acton is forested, although some parts have been cleared for residential, agricultural, and commercial use by corporations. However, with so much access to ponds and swamps, it’s not uncommon to come across annoying pests like mosquitos, ticks, and other unwanted creatures.


With nearly 2 percent of Acton’s land dedicated to rivers, streams, and swamps, common pests are densely populated and tend to make their way inside residents’ homes. The good news is that Greenhow is native to the Boston area and knows exactly the types of pests local to the area and how to eliminate them from any Acton property.

  • Pest Control

    There are more than 100 thousand aquatic insect species, which means you’re bound to run into a few of them living by rivers and swamps in Acton. Whether it’s waterbugs, spiders, or even snakes, most homeowners want to avoid these pests altogether. Luckily, Greenhow knows precisely how to combat these unwanted pests in or around your home.

  • Lawn Care

    Keeping up with your lawn is a lot of work. After all, it requires nutrients, water, and a healthy soil pH balance. Unfortunately, sometimes even the smallest property can be the most demanding, which is why most homeowners opt for hiring professionals that can ensure their lawn looks gorgeous all year long no matter what.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks are notorious pests in waterside towns. This is because they thrive on humidity and moisture, which means that they’re widespread in and around Acton properties. And since mosquitos and ticks are dangerous carriers of dozens of diseases, it’s essential that you get your property treated every year.

  • Plant Health Care

    Your plants deserve as much attention as your home does, which is why Greenhow also specializes in plant health care. With a comprehensive approach to keeping your plants healthy and pest-free, Greenhow guarantees that your garden will always look—and be—at its best.

  • Rodent Control

    It’s normal to see rodents like mice and rats outside in your backyard, but it’s an entirely different story if they find a way inside your home. No matter the type, rodents tend to chew through infrastructure and wires—and can even attract other unwanted pests when they leave behind their feces and other dangerous allergens.

  • Termite Control

    Termites are small insects that infest the inner walls of homes and buildings. When infestations go unnoticed, these colonies of thousands can destroy the infrastructure and electrical wiring of your home—and ultimately cost you thousands of dollars in repairs! That’s why it’s a good idea to hire a termite control expert who can identify and target any sized infestation on your property.

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.
