Pest Control Services in Lexington, MA


Lexington was settled in 1641 and originally served the area as a thriving farming community. The town is perhaps most well known for being home to the Lexington Battle Green, or the Lexington Common. It was there, on April 19, 1775, that the opening shots of the Battles of Lexington and Concord were fired, marking the beginning of the American Revolutionary War. Unwanted pests were present in Lexington even then, in 1775.

After the Revolutionary War, Lexington’s population grew steadily while still primarily farming and providing Boston with plenty of produce.

Some 200 years later, in the 1970s, Lexington transitioned into a densely suburban city with an abundance of housing developments and subdivisions. Thanks to the high-tech boom and the railroad’s introduction, Lexington continued to prosper as residents had easier access to larger cities like Boston.

As a former farming town and current bedroom community to Boston, Lexington is currently home to nearly 34 thousand people—but its location also means that it has its fair share of access to unwanted pests.


Historical farming towns like Lexington often thrived by producing food for surrounding areas, but the expansive woodland areas now, unfortunately, invite unwanted pests. But with a comprehensive and safe approach, the Boston-native pest control company Greenhow can identify and eliminate any insect or rodent infestation.

  • Pest Control

    Whether it’s spiders, ants, or roaches, these frustrating pests are sure to send shivers up your spine—and it’s safe to assume that you want them out of your home right away. However, it can be hard to target these unwanted pests since they typically come through cracks and crevices of old houses, which is why you want a professional like the team at Greenhow to help you right away.

  • Lawn Care

    Everybody wants that picture-perfect front lawn, but obtaining one is an entirely different story. Luckily, that’s where Greenhow comes in: With years of lawn care expertise, our team can ensure your lawn remains green and healthy all year long.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Heavily wooded areas like Lexington are prone to many unwanted pests, including annoying ones like mosquitos and ticks. But these pests are far more than just irritating—they’re also dangerous and can spread viruses and diseases like West Nile and Lyme. That’s why it’s essential that you get your property treated every year so that the whole family remains safe.

  • Plant Health Care

    Most homeowners love to add ornamental shrubbery and flowers to their front lawn, but keeping up with their health can be a whole different challenge. When backyard pests get in the way, your plants and garden begin to suffer. That’s where Greenhow comes in: With expertise in all-things plants and gardening, our team can ensure your plants are free of pests and stay healthy all year long.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents like mice and rats are notorious for breaking into homes for shelter over the winter. They usually build nests in attic spaces or between the walls, which means that there’s plenty of room for them to cause infrastructure stability issues and unwanted allergens from dust and feces.

  • Termite Control

    Termites may be small—but when colonies invade your home, they have the potential to be extremely dangerous. These colonies of thousands can destroy the infrastructure and electric wiring of your home, which can cost thousands of dollars to repair. That’s why it’s wise to work with a termite inspector at least once a year so that infestations can be avoided altogether.

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!
– Michael K., Arlington, MA

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.
