Pest Control Services in Abington, MA


Before European settlers arrived in the Boston area, Abington was better known as Manamooskeagin to the local Wampanoag and Algonquin Native Americans, which means “great green place of shaking grass.” It was later changed to Abington by Governor Joseph Dudley as thanks to the Countess of Abingdon, England, who had helped secure his spot on the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

In the late 1700s, an iron factory was established. For several years, this foundry was an integral part of Abington’s economy. In 1815, a local inventor named Jesse Reed built a machine that mass-produced tacks, which forced the town’s primary industry to evolve into shoe-making for the next century and a half. This was so successful that these factories provided nearly half of the footwear for the Union Army in the Civil War.

Today, Abington remains a small coastal town on Massachusetts Bay that also has the Shumatuscacant River and Beaver Brook running through its corners. Unfortunately, in wooded and coastal areas like these, residents and business owners alike can expect their fair share of unwanted pests like termites around their properties. 


Whether it’s termites, mosquitos, ticks, rodents, or something else, Greenhow Pest Control has got your back in getting rid of these pests. As natives to the Boston area, Greenhow uses green-certified products and can safely treat your entire property to ensure that pests don’t bother you again.

  • Pest Control

    Spiders, cockroaches, and ants may be common—but they don’t belong in your home. Thanks to Greenhow’s comprehensive services, finding reliable pest control experts in Abington has never been easier. With years of experience in treating and eradicating all types of pests, you can relax easily knowing that your home or business is in good hands. 

  • Termite Control

    The last thing any property owner wants to deal with is a termite infestation, mainly because they’re so damaging and nearly impossible to notice. An unknown termite infestation can cause severe infrastructure damage, which can also cost thousands of dollars in repairs. The best thing you can do as a property owner is to work with a termite control expert who can identify and eradicate any existing population. 

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Everybody wants to spend more time outside when the weather gets warmer—unfortunately, so do pests like ticks and mosquitoes. But these insects aren’t just a nuisance: They’re also common carriers of diseases like West Nile and Lyme. Instead of resorting to your bottle of bug spray, it’s a better idea to get your property treated once every summer season. 

  • Plant Health Care

    Pests aren’t just common in the home: They’re common around them too, like in your garden or shrubs. Plus, trees, shrubs, and plants are demanding and require maintenance to stay healthy and thriving all year long, which is something Greenhow can help you with.

  • Rodent Control

    When temperatures begin to drop, rodents will do their best to find their way to warm shelter. Unfortunately, that can mean your home or building. Rats and mice can find their way inside through small crevices in attic spaces, where they’ll build nests, spread allergens, and even invite other unwanted pests inside.

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.
