Pest Control in Metro Boston : Mosquitos, Ticks, Termites & More

Metro Boston Service Area

Somerville, Medford, Arlington, Belmont, Chestnut Hill, Dedham, Milton and Quincy

Got a pest problem?

We understand how having insects like bed bugs, ticks, and termites can make your home feel a lot less welcoming, maybe even downright unpleasant. Let our experienced pest control professionals solve the problem for you.

Bugs and rodents carry many deadly diseases. These pests can also transmit parasites and infections to people. Bed bugs are normally associated with reddish skin with bite marks. However, studies have discovered that bed bugs can cause Chagas disease, a very prevalent and fatal disease in the US. 

Your problems could get even worse with rats infesting your home. They can carry diseases such as leptospirosis, salmonella, hantavirus that put you and your family’s lives at risk.

And let’s not forget about those common pesky little critters: mosquitoes and ticks. There are many other dangerous pests, both big and small, that you probably take for granted.

You may have tried getting rid of these pests with over-the-counter pesticides and insecticides, as well as DIY methods. 

While you may have found moderate success by eliminating the visible pests in your home, you can be sure that there’s more where they came from. These pests will continue infesting your home if you don’t get to the root cause of the problem.

Don’t put yourself at risk by attempting to eliminate these pests yourself. Instead, call Greenhow Pest Control. Our technicians will inspect your home and provide you with all the information you need to make an intelligent decision about your pest control needs.

Let Professionals Take Care of Your Pest Problem for You

During your free pest inspection, we will go over all the details of how to protect your home and belongings and make sure there aren’t any food or water sources inside or outside your home for the bugs to congregate to. 

Our experts implement integrated pest management and natural methods to eliminate the problem. By keeping your home clean, getting rid of clutter, and throwing out anything that might be a nesting place for pests, you can rid your home of most of the pests.

Next, we’ll inspect your house and locate cracks or holes that are accessible to the pests. By getting these repaired, we can prevent pests from entering your house. If the pest problem still persists after these steps, Greenhow Pest Control’s experts use chemicals to kill pests. 

Many pesticides and contaminants are toxic to humans, but, with our years of expertise and non-toxic control methods, we ensure that none of your belongings in your home will be damaged during the process. We’ll guide you on what to do to keep yourselves safe all year-long.

Get your home back from pests and ensure that the entire process will be safe for your household using Greenhow Pest Control.
