The A-1 Termite & Pest Control Story
Serving Western NC Since 1966
Jack Roberts was fresh out of pest control school at North Carolina State University when he and his wife, Peggy, bought a fledgling business and made it the foundation for their family. A-1 Termite and Pest Control has its beginnings in Lenoir, but has grown to serve all of western North Carolina with a single-minded approach - putting their customers first.
Jack was active in the community from a young age, participating in Jaycees, Rotary and local homebuilders associations. He wanted to make sure he did a good job and that people saw the value in his service. Son Bruce and daughter Michele learned this legacy of service as they grew up beside the business, and today carry on Jack's work. Both graduated from N.C. State just like their dad. Bruce worked at A-1 Termite & Pest Control on school breaks from his early teenage years and today manages his father's business. Sister Michele Stanley runs a route in Hickory, serving A-1 Termite & Pest Control's customers on the front line. Bruce and Michele remain dedicated to the vision their father created in 1966 - taking care of homes and businesses with expertise and compassion.
