Pest Control Services in Arlington, MA


Like many New England towns, Arlington was settled by English settlers in 1635. At the time, the city was heavily centered around the Mystic River and the Mill Brook stream. Historians theorize that with the construction of several mills, these waterfront accesses heavily impacted Arlington’s early local economy.

During those first few years, Arlington started as a thriving farming community that specialized in growing lettuce. The town also specialized in the ice industry, where “Ice King” Frederic Tudor sent ice from Spy Pond to the Caribbean and India.

Today, Arlington remains a growing city, with more than 40 thousand residents spread across ten smaller neighborhoods. However, Arlington is also a hot spot for unwanted pests with access to several rivers and streams. 


Towns like Arlington established along central bodies of water tend to be more prone to certain types of pests, like mosquitos, ticks, rodents, and small mammals. The good news is that Greenhow is native to the Boston Metro area, so they know how to identify and eliminate any type of pest problem in Arlington.

  • Pest Control

    Roaches, spiders, and ants! No matter what kind of pest it is, you don’t want them in your home. These small pests typically come in through cracks and crevices in the home’s foundation, making it hard to target and eradicate them.

  • Lawn Care

    Pest control is essential for your property, but so is ensuring that your lawn gets the best care possible. But between watching nutrient levels, water intake, and soil health, it can be challenging to make sure your property is thriving and healthy. Luckily, Greenhow also has expertise in taking care of lawns to make sure they always look their best.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Arlington is a beautiful city, but its proximity to rivers and lakes invites many unwanted pests, including mosquitos and ticks. That’s why it’s best to get your property treated every year because—although tiny—these insects are known to spread dangerous diseases like West Nile Virus and Lyme disease.

  • Plant Health Care

    Plants need three things to survive: Nutrients, water, and sunlight. Although simple and straightforward, keeping up with your plants’ health can be a lot more challenging than that—especially if you don’t know where to start. Greenhow has years of plant health care expertise and can keep your garden and ornamental shrubs looking healthy and gorgeous all year long.

  • Rodent Control

    Chipmunks might look cute from afar, but it’s an entirely different story when they begin to take shelter in your home. No matter the type, rodents of any kind can be dangerous to your home, especially since they can chew through your infrastructure and electrical wires—which can lead to significant damages.

  • Termite Control

    Since an infestation can go unnoticed for years, termites are a home’s silent killer. These small creatures live in colonies of thousands and have the ability to destroy your home’s infrastructure if not eradicated before it’s too late. You can avoid this by working with a termite control expert who can help identify an infestation.

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.
