Pest Control Services in Harvard, MA


Harvard is a gorgeous town with a unique history: In its past, Harvard was home to several organizations, like the Harvard Shaker Village, the utopian yet experimental Fruitlands transcendentalism center, and St. Benedict Abbey.

Fruitlands was experimental because it was a small community to live off the fruits of the land, but unfortunately, the village only lasted seven years. Still, it was a temporary home to famous literary authors like Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Today, Harvard is an affluent town with excellent public schools. It’s mostly enclosed by rolling hills and wetlands, making beautiful scenery for parks, orchards, and riding stables throughout the town. However, living close to wetlands like Bare Hill Pond can bring unwanted pests like mosquitoes and rodents around Harvard residents’ homes.


As natives to the Boston metro area, the expert team at Greenhow is familiar with the types of pests you might encounter in Harvard—especially those who live near the wetlands or woods. The good news is that Greenhow can identify and eradicate any unwanted problems using safe materials and comprehensive treatment plans.

  • Pest Control

    No matter the type of pest, homeowners know that keeping them at bay is a must. Unfortunately, it can be a challenge to eliminate pest populations, especially if you don’t see the root of the problem. Luckily, that’s where Greenhow comes in: Whether it’s ants, spiders, or crickets, this expert team can ensure that they stay out for good.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    With just one bite, mosquitoes and ticks can ruin any day spent outside. However, these pests are not only a pain to deal with, they are also known carriers of dangerous diseases like West Nile and Lyme. The best thing you can do for your property is to have it treated every season so that you—and everybody else—can stay safe. 

  • Termite Control

    The worst thing about a termite infestation is that it can go unnoticed for years. These populations typically find their way inside of buildings and begin building their nest in the walls. Since termites chew on wood to help make their nests, an infestation in your home can compromise its structural integrity, which can cost thousands of dollars in repairs.

  • Plant Health Care

    Did you know that your plants’ health might be at risk? Common pests like slugs, beetles, and mites love to invade gardens and low-lying plants as their primary food source. So if you’ve ever noticed undiagnosable holes and wilting in your plants’ leaves, then it might be time to call the plant health care experts at Greenhow.

  • Rodent Control

    Although it can sometimes be hard to tell, there are a few obvious signs that a rodent has set up camp in your home. If you hear pitter-pattering in your ceiling, light scratching in your walls, or even find unidentified droppings, then you likely have rats or mice. Unfortunately, these rodents breed fast and quickly, which is why it’s crucial that you call the rodent control experts at Greenhow right away.

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.
