The most important part of any pest control service is to correctly identify the type of pest you are dealing with and get an idea of the size (scope) of the issue. Since most pests are constantly on the move from one area to another, try to save a sample or take a picture if you can get close enough. If you see evidence of the pest like droppings, chew marks, insect wings, try to leave them undisturbed until an inspector has had a chance to do an initial assessment. If you must pick them up, use a glove or paper towel to protect your hand and save them for the inspector in a zip lock bag. If you can’t be home or if it is a lawn or plant pest, use a marker like a Popsicle stick.
You have a pest problem.
We are here to solve it…for you and your family.
Pest control where you live can be a little nerve wracking. First, you acknowledge you have animals sharing your space that are not pets and need to leave. Second, you have to decide to try to get rid of them on your own or enlist help. On your own you seek out advice online from a YouTube specialist or from the hardware store or big box store associate who may know less about pests than any other item in the store. Or you can reach out to family and friends for help, until you realize that then your family and friend’s will know you have a pest problem.
Our business depends on solving your pest problems efficiently, effectively and with the least risk to anything not the target pest. We have been a leader in Integrated Pest Management, the combination of different techniques and strategies to control pests, since we started.

Pest Management – To Keep Them Away For Good
Comprehensive Pest Control
Greenhow Pest Management is a comprehensive approach to pest control, which emphasizes structural, environmental, biological, and mechanical methods to prevent pest populations from developing. This requires constant monitoring, and thorough inspections inside and outside of the structure to identify and remedy pest conducive conditions prior to an infestation occurring. Greenhow Pest Management is the logical extension of Integrated Pest Management, also a comprehensive approach to pest control, which relies on inside and outside inspections to identify and prevent possible pest infestations.
Why is it important to consider pesticide use?
Pesticides are designed to kill and control a pest. They may pose risks to non-targets or organisms they are not intended for simply by being used. Consider how and when to use a pesticide to reduce risks to non-targets, like people and pets.
The difference is…
The difference with Greenhow Pest Management is when a pest control material is needed, the preferred material is from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. Our Comprehensive Pest Control system uses a combination of non-chemical and chemical treatments to control pest populations and prevent re-infestation. We recommend a service frequency that meets your needs for our residential customers to ensure constant monitoring and prevention.
