Pest Control Services in Burlington, MA


Burlington was incorporated in 1799, and many of its early homes are still standing today. The Francis Wyman House, for example, was built in 1666 and is widely considered the oldest home in Burlington.

Burlington is located on the watersheds of the Ipswich, Mystic, and Shawsheen Rivers. Because of this, the watermill industry was significant throughout the town for several hundred years up until the late 19th century. Burlington remained a farming town and would cure hams and produce milk, fruit, and vegetables for the Boston area. This quickly changed when Route 128 was built, which tripled the town’s population.

Today, Burlington is a residential and professional hub. It is home to many high tech companies that line Route 128. Although primarily updated to a dense-suburban community, Burlington residents still experience their share of unwanted pests along its several rivers.


Although the town wasn’t incorporated until the late 18th century, Burlington is home to some of the oldest houses in the country that date back nearly 400 years. However, these old homes, and even the new ones, have lots of nooks and crannies, which allow for unwanted insects and rodents to come inside. The good news is that Greenhow is native to the Boston area and knows exactly the types of pests that frequent Burlington—and how to eliminate them altogether.

  • Pest Control

    Although beautiful, older homes are notorious for attracting unwelcome pests. With old infrastructures, foundations, and walls, it’s easy for ants, spiders, and crickets to crawl through cracks and crevices where they can make your home part of theirs. Luckily, Greenhow has a comprehensive approach to eradicating any pests in Burlington.

  • Lawn Care

    Your front lawn is the first thing you see when you come home, so naturally, you’d want it always to look its best. But keeping up with your lawn’s needs can be a challenge in itself, especially since some grasses and soil types are finickier than others. That’s where the pros at Greenhow come in: With years of lawn care expertise in the Burlington area, Greenhow can eliminate any unwanted pests and beautify your property year-round.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Summertime is supposed to be fun—but that can be put to a halt when mosquitos and ticks are present. Unfortunately, these tiny pests are all too common in old towns like Burlington, which is why it’s a good idea to get your property treated every year so that the whole family can be outside happily and safely.

  • Plant Health Care

    Small insects like caterpillars and beetles can severely damage your lawn and plants because they’re notorious for chewing away at healthy gardens. So when they’re present, your plants can’t thrive. Luckily, Greenhow knows how to safely eradicate these unwanted pests while keeping your plants healthy.

  • Rodent Control

    Common pests like mice and rats are known for finding their way into homes during the year’s colder months. However, it’s best to eradicate these pests right away, otherwise your home’s health—and your family’s—be in danger.

  • Termite Control

    Termites are any homeowner’s worst enemy. When a termite infestation goes unnoticed and gets out of hand, eradication and repairs alone can cost thousands of dollars. That’s why it’s a good idea to be proactive and avoid these infestations altogether by working with termite experts who can help termite-proof your home for years to come.

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.
