Pest Control in Winthrop, MA


In 1630, English Puritan colonists settled on Pullen Poynt, which is what Winthrop is today. Its name, which means “pulling point,” comes from the experience where colonist boatmen had difficulty pulling into the shore due to the area’s strong tides. Eventually, the town was named after John Winthrop, the second governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Today, Winthrop is made up of nearly 19,000 residents across several districts. It is also home to two historic military forts and several other five sites that the National Register of Historic Places protects. It is an excellent residential and commercial town because of its proximity to Boston and numerous beaches as a peninsula.

As an oceanside community, Winthrop is accessible through either Beachmont or isthmus that connects Winthrop to Harbor View. Its expansive shoreline also offers views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Boston Skyline.

Although it’s a highly desirable place for those around the Boston area, Winthrop residents have to deal with their fair share of unwanted coastal pests, like mosquitos, ticks, and much more.


Living near the coast is a lucky experience, but dealing with the common pests that come around marshlands is no walk in the park.

The good news is that’s where Greenhow comes in: With years of experience using family-safe products, the experts at Greenhow Pest Control can eradicate any pest population from your home or business.

  • Pest Control

    It might be normal to see pests around your home—but that doesn’t mean they belong inside of your home. When pests like ants and spiders become a problem, the professionals at Greenhow can identify potential entry points, treat common hiding spots, and eliminate existing populations so that you can live in peace and without worry.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    When the summer months set in, everybody wants to spend time outside to enjoy the warm weather. Unfortunately, so do mosquitos and ticks. For several months a year, these pests reproduce quickly and depend on feeding off mammals like humans and pets for food.

    While annoying, this can also be dangerous since they’re known carriers of diseases like West Nile and Lyme. Be sure to get your property treated every season to keep these pests far and away.

  • Termite Control

    Termites are any homeowner’s worst nightmare. These tiny pests love to chew away at most buildings’ wooden infrastructure, which can cost anywhere between hundreds and thousands of dollars in repairs.

    As a property owner, the best thing you can do to prevent this expensive problem is to hire a termite control expert who can inspect your home and identify any potential populations.

  • Plant Health Care

    You know you take good care of your plants—but what do you do when common pests like caterpillars, slugs, and beetles are chewing away every time you turn your back? Plants are delicate, and the slightest issue can cause significant distress. That’s why it’s essential that you treat your garden with safe products that can also keep these pests at bay.

  • Rodent Control

    It’s not uncommon to see rodents like mice or rats outside, but it’s time to take action if you suspect they’ve made their way inside of your home.

    Rodents prefer warm shelters like walls and attic spaces, which makes them all the more challenging to eliminate once they’ve built a nest. That’s why it’s easier to work with a rodent control expert who can safely eradicate them from your property 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!

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.
