A long standing family commitment to service and safety



The founder of our company, John H. Robinson, after serving in the First World War came home to Cleveland and served his community using the skills he learned protecting the troops against insect borne disease overseas. He became the only Black licensed fumigator in the state of Ohio and remained so for many years. John, together with his wife Jesse, operated the J.H. Robinson Exterminating Company known and remembered by many native Clevelanders since its beginning in 1937. During the second and third generations of the Robinson and Carter family the company succeeded and thrived under the direction of John W. and LaVenia Robinson Carter, and still has on board one of the states few licensed fumigators and the only African-American A.C.E. entomologist. From our inception until today it has been an honor to be able to provide critical pest protection and consulting services to our community and we look forward to continuing to do so.
