Pest Control in Chelsea, MA


Originally called Winnisimmet, a Massachusett tribe word for “good spring nearby,” Chelsea was settled in 1624. It was considered the first official settlement of Boston Harbor. Over the following years, Chelsea became a part of Boston, but it eventually broke off into its own town in 1739.

By the early 20th century, Chelsea was the destination for a “great wave” of Russian and Eastern European immigrants. Unfortunately, a devastating fire wiped out two-thirds of the town in 1908, which left more than half the city’s residents homeless. Many immigrants left and never returned, which allowed for Bostonites to relocate to Chelsea.

Although Chelsea is the smallest city in Massachusetts in terms of square miles, its urbanized community holds more than 35,000 diverse residents today from all different cultures.

Its downtown skyline is full of tall, sleek buildings to accommodate apartment housing and businesses alike. But because of the town’s location on the coastline, pests like ants, roaches, rodents, and much more are all too common around residents’ homes.


Whether you live downtown or in the suburbs, you need pest control that works quickly. That’s where Greenhow comes in: As the area’s leading pest control professionals, our experts can identify any pest infestation and eradicate them entirely so that you can live and work in peace.

  • Pest Control

    Common pests like ants, roaches, crickets, and much more are prevalent in coastal areas like Chelsea. Unfortunately, combating these frustrating invaders is a challenge in itself—which is why it’s best that the job is left to the pest control experts at Greenhow.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks aren’t only annoying: They’re also dangerous. As known potential carriers of diseases like West Nile and Lyme, you want to do everything you can to avoid being bit by these pesky pests.

    Unfortunately, these tiny insects breed quickly and may latch onto you or your pets without you even noticing—which is why it’s a good idea to get your property treated every season.

  • Termite Control

    Termites may be small, but the damage they do can be massive. These colonies can reach into the thousands as they build a nest in your home’s walls and chew away at the wooden infrastructure.

    The worst part is that termite infestations often go unnoticed for years, which is why it’s best to have a termite control expert inspect your home every year to identify any potential populations.

  • Plant Health Care

    For many plant owners, there are countless hours spent planting, pruning, and watering. But what do you do when unsuspecting pests quietly chew away at your plants’ leaves?

    Common problems like slugs, beetles, and even caterpillars infest plants, causing detrimental damage to your plants’ health—so be sure to work with a plant health care pro that can identify potential infestations and treat your plants to keep these pests at bay.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents tend to keep to themselves when they’re outside, but it’s a whole different story when the colder months begin to set in. Around fall and wintertime, rodents like mice and rats will do anything to find warm shelter where they can nest over the season.

    Unfortunately, this means that rodents often make their way into people’s homes—which can be a major health hazard for you and your family.

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.
