Pest Control Services in Billerica, MA


In the early 1630s, Billerica was better known as Shawsheen. At the time, the village was named after the Shawsheen River as it belonged to a Praying Indian village. By the late 1630s, the Massachusetts Bay Governor was granted some land and brought in a dozen families to occupy the area, which is when Shawsheen became Billerica and its population quickly grew.

The Concord River and the Shawsheen River are still major waterways within Billerica. In its early beginnings, the rivers were vital to the growing town, serving as a place to fish and establish farmland. Today, the farmland is not as expansive as it once was: Instead, Billerica’s rivers are main points of interest to the locals and visitors.

Although a rich part of Billerica’s history, residing along rivers like the Shawsheen and Concord can be problematic because pests like ticks, mosquitos, rodents, and even termites become all too familiar to property owners in the area.


Billerica is a beautiful town with plenty to see, but that also means that dealing with pests that are attracted to drylands and wetlands can be a hassle. Luckily, the Boston natives at  Greenhow Pest Control have seen it all: With family-safe, comprehensive methods, this expert team can identify and eliminate any pest infestation in or around your home.

  • Pest Control

    Nobody likes to deal with unwanted pests, so whether it’s crickets, roaches, or bugs in the home, it’s safe to say that you want them gone immediately. The good news is that Greenhow knows precisely the kinds of pests you might have in a waterside town like Billerica, including where to find them and how to eliminate them quickly and safely.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    When summertime finally comes around, it’s easy to pass the time outside gardening or playing with the kids. Unfortunately, all of that can be put to a halt when mosquitoes and ticks make an appearance. And not only are these pests annoying, but they’re known to carry dangerous diseases like West Nile and Lyme—which is why it’s crucial to treat your property every year.

  • Termite Control

    With more than $5 billion spent each year on termite damage in the United States alone, it’s safe to say that a termite infestation is a home’s silent killer. The best thing you can do is to have annual home inspections by termite experts who can identify any early signs of an infestation—and act quickly before any significant damage is done.

  • Plant Health Care

    You work hard to take care of your garden, so why shouldn’t it work for you too? The unfortunate reality is that plants are notoriously picky, which is why it’s a good idea to get expert help from plant health care professionals like the Greenhow team. Plus, Greenhow can identify any pests like beetles, snails, and mites and make sure they’re kept at bay.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents are an essential part of nature—which is why they belong outside. So when small creatures like mice and rats set up shelter inside your home, you know they have to be removed right away. However, doing so can be a challenge, which is why it’s best to leave it 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.
