Pest Control in Duxbury, MA


As named by the native Wampanoags of the Algonquin group, Duxbury was originally Mattakeesett, which means “place of many fish.” This excellent seaside town was a significant hub for fishing and farming, which is what attracted English settlers to the area.

For many years, early settlers only traveled to Duxbury during the warmer months to tend to their farming. However, it wasn’t long until they began building houses and moved their families to the growing village.

Today, the historic seaside town is home to around 15,000 people and attracts summer tourists every year, contributing to the town’s local economy. There remains plenty of lands dedicated to beaches and mansion-like residencies scattered along the coast, making Duxbury one of the wealthiest and most serene towns of Massachusetts Bay.

Duxbury is also home to Saquish Neck, a hook-shaped strip of land that closes in on the coast of the town. This makes for great fishing for oysters and shellfish. The remote town is also home to several sanctuaries dedicated to wildlife conservation. However, this means that it’s not uncommon for unwanted pests like termites, mosquitos, ticks, and rodents to make their way around locals’ homes.


As natives to the Boston Metro area, there is no type of pest infestation that Greenhow hasn’t seen yet. Greenhow uses safe chemicals with a comprehensive approach to identify and eradicate any unwanted pest populations around your property.

  • Pest Control

    Dealing with pests is often the last thing anybody wants to do. Small insects like ants, crickets, and even roaches like the American Cockroach make their way inside homes and buildings through minor entry points while seeking food and shelter. The best way to combat these unwanted pests is to have a pest control pro identify and remove any populations.

  • Termite Control

    Getting rid of termites is hard, but what’s even more challenging is identifying a population in the first place. These expansive colonies work quietly, and it could be years before you even notice any significant damage. The best thing you can do is work with an expert termite control specialist who can identify any infestations and eliminate them before more damage is done.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks aren’t only annoying, they can also carry dangerous diseases like West Nile and Lyme. When the reproductive season comes around, it’s best to get your property treated so that your family can enjoy the summer sun without concern.

  • Plant Health Care

    Plants are a beautiful addition to any property, but keeping up with their health can be a challenge. Trees and shrubs require frequent watering, nutrition, and could begin to wilt at the first sign of the smallest issue. Plus, you have to combat hungry pests like beetles, slugs, and caterpillars. It’s best to work with a pest control pro who can eliminate these types of pests while also keeping your plants in good health.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents like rats and mice are among the last creatures you want crawling around your property or attic space. Unfortunately, these pests aren’t only annoying, they can trigger allergies in household members, ruin your home’s electrical wiring, and also attract other unwanted pests like crickets and roaches.

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.
