General Info
Petri’s Positive Pest Control, Inc. , a full service pest control company, was founded by Henry C. Petri in Miami, Florida in 1956. In the early 1960′s Petri’s expanded into Broward County when Mr. Petri purchased a small pest control company in Pompano Beach. In 1972, Brendan E. Cavanagh joined Petri’s Positive Pest Control, Inc. when he and his family moved to South Florida from New Jersey. Mr. Cavanagh’s strong sales ability and his familiarity with public relations served him well and under his leadership the Broward County office grew rapidly during the 70’s and 80’s as he became partners with Mr. Petri. Growth continued when, in 1978, the owners of Petri’s purchased a parcel of land in West Palm Beach, erected a building and began servicing customers in Palm Beach and Martin counties. In 1988 the original Miami operation was sold and the sale allowed Petri’s owners and managers to concentrate their efforts on the two remaining locations. Mr. Petri, and Brendan E. Cavanagh, are both past presidents of the Florida Pest Management Association and have served in leadership positions with the National Pest Management Association and Associated Pest Control Association. In June of 1990, Hank Petri was honored and presented the Pioneer Award at the Florida Pest Management Association’s annual convention for his contribution and dedication to the pest control industry in the state of Florida. In December 1995, a Third Generation in Christopher Cavanagh, joined Petri’s and continues to oversee the daily operations through today. Petri serves all of Broward County and has continued to expand our service territory north into Palm Beach County over the past several years. Through the many years that Petri has been serving South Florida the company has gone through tremendous change and progression. Technology has affected the pest management industry in many positive ways, enabling Petri to improve our communications as well as our delivery of service and response to our customers. One thing that we have always tried to keep constant is our mission: to provide our customers with the highest quality service possible and remain the family owned, neighborhood company your community can count on for all their pest control needs.

Raphael is very knowledgeable and gave me all options on how he would treat and get rid of my bug problem. Very professional and I am very happy I used Petri, also, Vanessa on the phone was very understanding of my need of the urgency for them to come quickly!!! These little bugs had to go!!!! Thanks to Petri I hope my cat and I never see these pests again.

I did have a problem with my lawn and was frustrated with Petri! However I called the company and within a few days, the two owners were on top of it. They took care of things and did a great job. They even put sod down to help resolve a problem. They stand behind what they say. Thanks Chris.

Recently I had a problem with ants in my kitchen and my pest control technician was so knowledgeable, polite and professional and he was solved my problem in a single visit.

These guys are the best. Their knowledge is only exceeded by their professionalism. Started using them to protect my house and now they handle my lawn and landscaping. Saved my ficus from a bad case of whitefly. Losing the hedge would have a been a real tragedy as we have had it for 20 years and it provides my home with needed privacy. You won't go wrong choosing Petri.

This company was so highly rec...

This company was so highly recommened to us. After six treatments at $170.00 we now have more weeds in the lawn than before, and the ficus hedge still has whitefly.Their customer service is non existant, and when they do call back their arrogance is incredible. Storngly suggest you let your fingers do the walking, AWAY from these people, they do not a clue what they are doing. Cannot imagine how they are still in business.

Thank you for your feedback. We could not find you in our system. If you contact our office and give us more information we would gladly look into your service. Petri cares about our customers and never wants a customer to leave unhappy. It is true that weed control in lawns can be challenging and other factors such as proper watering, mowing, shade tolerance, etc. can strongly factor into a lawn's condition and the amount of weeds. Please call our office and ask to speak to me and I will glady address any concerns you may have. Chris Cavanagh - VP/Owner - 954-781-4100. Thank you.
