EHS was founded in 1985 and provides pest control services throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.


BRUNSWICK, Maine – Modern Pest Services, an Anticimex company, announced its newest partner in New England with the acquisition of Environmental Health Services (EHS Pest) of Norwood, Mass.

EHS was founded in 1985 and provides pest control services in Boston, metro-west, along Massachusetts’ south shore, and into Rhode Island. EHS has always been focused on providing best in class consumer experience, and their dedication to integrated pest management has always been part of their core values.  

John Stellberger, president of EHS, commented about the acquisition, “Our partnership with Modern Pest Services and The Anticimex Group will further grow our vision for environmentally-responsible, humane, cutting edge, and preventive pest control. I am excited to continue our efforts with such a strong commitment from Modern and the resources of Anticimex, a global pest control leader.”  

Dennis Dube, president of Modern, said, “I’m thrilled to announce that the newest addition to the Modern family is EHS.  From day one of our discussions, I could not have more impressed with their organization, their leadership team, and the total focus on client service”. 

Dube added, “For the clients of Modern Pest services, this latest addition means more great news. Today we also announce a new branch located on the south shore of Massachusetts.  This means more dedicated team members and faster routing in and around the Boston area. This will only enhance our best in class service.”  

Modern’s operations in Massachusetts will be divided between the new Norwood branch, and the current Woburn branch. This is Modern’s eighth acquisition since 2017.
