Pest Control in Peabody, MA


The land of Peabody was settled by English colonists in 1626. However, it was originally established as part of Salem. Because of its incorporation with Salem, many Peabody residents were accused and convicted of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials during the late 17th century.

Around 1752, Peabody broke off and joined Danvers instead. In 1855, the area became South Danvers. A few years later, in 1868, the town was renamed Peabody in honor of the local philanthropist George Peabody, who was referred to as the “father of modern philanthropy.”

Today, Peabody is home to around 53,000 residents. Most of the town is suburban, so it has quickly become a bedroom community for commuters to Boston and offers plenty of work for residents. Like many other parts of Eastern Massachusetts, Peabody is nestled between plenty of water, like the Ipswich River, the Waters River, and the Danvers River.

Unfortunately, being so close to marshlike environments like these rivers can often invite unwanted pests like mosquitos, ticks, and termites into residents’ homes and businesses.


Being waterside is one of the many benefits of living in the bustling town of Peabody, but dealing with unwanted pests is something most people can go without. If you’re noticing one too many insects or rodents in or around your home, then it’s time to call Greenhow. With years of experience in all things related to pest infestations, Greenhow has got your back. Get in touch with us today.

  • Pest Control

    Ants, crickets, and even roaches are all too common in coastal areas like Peabody. Unfortunately, combating these pests can be challenging, especially since they are elusive, and identifying an entry point is no easy task. That’s why it’s essential that you work with a pest control expert who can identify and eliminate any existing infestations around your home.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    The warmer months are among the best times of the year when living in a coastal town, but mosquitos and ticks can ruin any summer day with ease. And what’s even worse is that mosquitos and ticks breed quickly and may even carry dangerous diseases like West Nile and Lyme.

    The best thing you can do is get your property treated every summer season to keep these pests at bay.

  • Termite Control

    Termites are any homeowner’s worst nightmare. These populations multiply quickly as they chew away at your home’s infrastructure—which can cost thousands of dollars in repairs if left unattended. 

    That’s why you should always work with a termite control expert, who can inspect your home at least once a year to identify and eradicate any potential infestations.

  • Plant Health Care

    Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a first-time green thumb, you know that your trees and shrubs require lots of care beyond sunlight and watering. However, several pests can damage your plants, like slugs, caterpillars, and beetles.

    Treating your plants without harm can be tricky, but the experts at Greenhow know how to handle your plants with care while keeping these pests at bay.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents usually keep to themselves when the weather is warm, but it’s not uncommon for them to find their way inside of homes and buildings when the colder months set in. Mice and rats seek warm shelter where they can set up a nest over the winter season—but in doing so, they can also trigger allergens and attract other unwanted pests.

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
