We are the first and only pest control company in the area to obtain the Green Shield and Green Pro certifications.

Our Ant Extermination Process
GreenHow experts take a proven approach to ant control, ensuring we do the job right the first time.
We start by identifying the specific type of pest (e.g., acrobat ants, carpenter ants), the size of the problem, and where they’re coming from. We check for multiple sources of entry to understand the entire scope of the pest issue.
Our technicians conduct an interior and exterior inspection to assess the level of pest activity and any resulting damage. Ants can create structural issues that may linger once the ants are removed and should be addressed once the problem is resolved.
We offer different levels of service depending on the type of ant infestation and the severity of the problem. The number of visits required to fully eliminate the problem is determined on a case-by-case basis. We’ll communicate our suggested timelines, treatments, and costs prior to beginning work.
Our technicians take pride in a job well done, but we’re not finished after your ant problem disappears. We conduct ongoing maintenance and prevention to ensure your problem doesn’t return.
What Type of Ant?
GreenHow treats over 15 species of ant. The most common ants here in Boston are carpenter ants and pavement ants, but our technicians are equipped with treatments and knowledge to handle any ant problem.
Carpenter Ant Removal
The most common ant we remove is the carpenter ant. They’re all over New England. Its natural habitat is wet wood outside, like trees, fallen trees, and stumps. They also nest in cavities and under rocks. In structures, carpenter ants are either foraging or have a nest. Our technicians can treat nests and barriers so you don’t have to share your home with pests.
Acrobat Ant Removal
Acrobat ants love to invade gardens, lawns, and anywhere that can trap heat and moisture. Acrobat ants are typically found outside in logs, trees, and under rocks where previous tunnels have been abandoned by previous insects. They will migrate indoors if they can identify a good nesting spot and/or food source.
Other types of ant removal include:
- Argentine ants
- Big-headed ants
- Cornfield ants
- Crazy ants
- Ghost ants
- Larger yellow ants
- Little black ants
- Odorous house ants
- Pharaoh ants
- Rover ants
- Thief ants
- White-footed ants

Common Questions About Ants
Still have questions? Check here or reach out to a GreenHow expert.
How Can I Prevent Ants?
You can prevent ants by cleaning up any spills or liquids immediately. Store food properly, including pet food. Calling a professional at the first sign of ant activity can help you prevent the problem from getting worse.
Why Are There Ants in My House?
Ants usually enter a home seeking food and shelter for nesting. If you find ants in your home, chances are they have found a favorable habitat. Deep cleaning your home to remove crumbs and clean up spills can make your home less inhospitable.
How Do I Know I Have an Ant Problem?
Aside from visibly seeing ants in your home, you might also notice ant mounds around your home or insect wings near window ledges or doors. Ants living inside your trees might also indicate you have more neighbors than you realize.
