Our family-owned business began with one employee and one truck
Patrick Exterminating was founded by Richard Patrick in Hobe Sound, Florida in 1988 with one truck and one employee. He trademarked the famous phrase “Just Say No to Bugs” and set up shop on U.S. Highway 1 next to the old Stoney’s Automotive location. In 1992, Patrick relocated to a 1,800 square-foot facility in the SPS Industrial Park in Stuart. He now had five techs on staff and six trucks on the road servicing accounts from Stuart to Jupiter. Growth continued through the 1990s as word of mouth spread about the excellent service delivered.
Expanding to serve our customers better
By 1999, operations included 11 trucks with 10 technicians and two customer service employees. Once again, a larger facility was needed to meet the needs of a growing customer base. Richard purchased land nearby on Gran Park Way and built an industry-specific building with dedicated work stations for each technician, along with offices for management and customer service personnel and drive-in storage bays for loading and offloading materials. An expansive parking area was included to accommodate the growing fleet. This facility remains in service today and the company has grown to 22 employees, 19 service vehicles and two dedicated lawn trucks.
