About Us

History

UT law student, Ned Granger, founded Roberts Pest Control, Inc. in 1959. While living in student housing, he began to have problems with pests and he found that a person with limited resources had very few options. After investigating the industry, Mr. Granger purchased the necessary materials to establish Roberts Pest Control.

Rock T. Thweatt started working for Roberts Pest Control, Inc. in 1980, while a student at Southwest Texas State University. Within six months, Rock was promoted to manager. In 1995 Rock purchased the company and changed the name to Roberts Termite and Pest Control, Inc.
