Pest Control in Hanover, MA


Like many other coastal New England towns around Massachusetts, the city of Hanover was founded by English settlers in 1649 when farmer William Barstow built a bridge between Hanover and the neighboring town along the North River. Because of its prime location, Hanover quickly became home to the farming, milling, forging, and shipbuilding industries. It also was the site of “The Grand Turk,” which was the first American ship to trade with China.

Today, Hanover is home to around 15,000 residents and is mainly a suburban town. Throughout the area, there are many war memorials and historical landmarks. Particularly notable is Stetson House, one of the town’s oldest homes dating back to the early 18th century. Locals can enjoy the historic look and feel of the city while situated just 17 miles from Plymouth, making Hanover an excellent tourist destination.  In 2021, Hanover High School announced a new mascot, the Hanover Hawks!  Hawks are great at controlling small rodents, like mice and rats.

Hanover is also located on the South Shore of Massachusetts, which provides plenty of opportunities for beach days, fishing, swimming, and boating. Unfortunately, being near large bodies of water like the Cape Cod Bay and North and Indian Head Rivers can also mean having to deal with uninvited pests like mosquitos, rodents, termites—and many more.


As natives to the Boston Metro area, Greenhow knows exactly the kinds of pests you might encounter around or on your property. The good news is that Greenhow’s got your back: With our integrated pest management services, you can trust this expert team to eradicate any unwanted pests from your home.

  • Pest Control

    Whether it’s spiders, crickets, or something else entirely, dealing with any type of pest is no walk in the park. Unfortunately, apparent signs of pests in or around your home could mean that an unwanted infestation is afoot, which is where the pest control experts at Greenhow come in.

  • Termite Control

    Termites may be tiny, but their populations can quickly grow into the thousands. As a worker-based community, termites constantly seek ways to extend their nest—which unfortunately means infesting wooden structures like homes and buildings throughout Hanover. That’s why it’s a good idea to work with a termite control expert who can identify and eradicate any potential populations before too much damage is done.

  • Mosquito & Tick Control

    Mosquitos and ticks aren’t just annoying—they’re also dangerous. As potential carriers of diseases like West Nile and Lyme, the last thing you want buzzing around your property is these pesky insects. The best thing you can do is to get your property treated once per season so that you and your family can safely enjoy the summer sun.

  • Plant Health Care

    Whether you’ve got a green thumb or are trying to add lushness to your property, many things go into your plants’ health. For starters, there might be pests around that you haven’t even noticed, like beetles, spiders, and slugs. The experts at Greenhow understand how to best take care of your trees, shrubs, and other plant life.

  • Rodent Control

    Rodents might be a common sighting in your backyard, but it’s an entirely different story when they build a nest inside of your home. Rodents like mice and rats typically do this when the cooler months begin to set in, and they start seeking warm shelter for the winter. Eradicating rodents is not a simple task, so you should leave this to the pros at Greenhow.

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!
– Michael K., Arlington, MA

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.
