Pest Control in Essex, MA


Essex is a coastal town with 3,500 residents sitting just 26 miles north of the bustling city of Boston. Despite having the same name as its county, Essex was incorporated much later than its neighboring towns in 1819. The waterside town was founded by settlers in 1634, but it was inhabited by the Agawam tribe and didn’t become officially settled by Europeans until the early 19th century.

There is little direct access to the Ipswich Bay or the Atlantic Ocean. Despite this, Essex was a major shipbuilding town with a shipyard at its very northeast corner. The central part of Essex mainly lies on a marshland surrounded by the Essex River, several creeks, and many low hills.

Because of this landscape, Essex holds onto that rural charm with plenty of forested areas and open spaces—but this also means that locals are no stranger to uninvited pests including termites and rodents.


Marshlands are a critical part of the ecosystem in Essex, but along with these areas comes unwanted pests like mosquitos, ticks, rodents, and much more. 

The good news is that Greenhow knows how to identify and safely eradicate any type of pest population using safe and comprehensive treatment plans. Learn more about how Greenhow can help your home become bug-free today.

  • Pest Control

    Bugs are everywhere—but that doesn’t mean that they have to be in or around your home. With help from our professionals at Greenhow, your entire property can be pest-free with careful entry-point identification and infestation removal. So whether it’s ants, centipedes, crickets, or something else entirely, Greenhow has got your back to keep them outside of your home.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks aren’t only annoying: They also have the potential to be dangerous. As known carriers of West Nile virus and Lyme disease, nobody wants these tiny pests lurking around their properties. Unfortunately, keeping ticks and mosquitos at bay is not an easy task. Luckily, you can keep these pests at bay by getting your property treated once every summer season.

  • Termite Control

    Since termites chew away at the wood to gain essential nutrients, it’s not uncommon to experience a termite infestation in your home. Unfortunately, termite infestations are dangerous and can cost you thousands of dollars in infrastructure repairs. The best thing you can do is work with a Greenhow expert who can survey your home and identify any potential populations before any true damage is done.

  • Plant Health Care

    When it comes to your plants, there’s more to worry about than just water intake and nutrient levels. You also have to think about the types of pests that may be infesting your garden, like snails, caterpillars, and beetles. If you begin noticing small chew holes on the edges and inside of your plant’s leaves, then it’s time to work with an expert who can help keep these annoying pests far and away.

  • Rodent Control

    When the cold months begin to come around, rodents like rats and mice, work hard to find a warm and safe shelter for the winter. Unfortunately, this often means your home—and the last thing you want is to share your space with a family of rodents. Plus, the presence of rodents can attract other pests like ants and roaches, which is the last thing most homeowners want.

    That’s why it’s a smart idea to rely on Greenhow’s expert team of pest control technicians, who can ensure your house remains sealed off from rodents and the trail of unwanted pests they track in.

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.
