Fully qualified and experienced

As well as holding ‘health & safety’ certification, I also hold a Level 2 Certificate Pest Control and Management, awarded by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). This award takes a year to complete and means I am fully trained to deal with all pests, whether insects, rodents, birds, squirrels, rats, mice, rabbits, pigeons, moles, woodworm, foxes etc., as well as the safe use of equipment and chemicals. I also hold a current shotgun licence and have specialist training and certification in insect infestations such as wasps, bees, ants, fleas, bedbugs, moths, flies, beetles etc. I also carry Public liability Insurance (up to £5million).

Rodent control is work I do all year round. Some people and businesses are embarrassed to admit they have a problem with mice and/ or rats, but these small rodents live all around us. When aspects of their environment change, favouring their reproduction, then their numbers can swell quickly and beyond expectations.

Rats and mice tend to be nocturnal creatures, although you can see them scurrying about during the day. You may find droppings as well as 'nesting material' such as cardboard, paper etc. shredded where they've chewed it, and taken it back to their nest. Mice and rats also cause damage very quickly to buildings and stock in commercial premises, as well as possibly spreading infection such as Weil's disease, salmonella etc. As soon you leave a rat or mice infested area, wash your hands with antibacterial soap and hot water!

I can deal effectively with any rodent infestation, controlling the immediate problem as well as providing longer term solutions, as I have specially adapted cameras to view sewage systems and small areas to limit the rodent problem for occurring. Rodent populations multiply quickly, so if you suspect that you have a rat or mice problem, then you need to call me!

I Can Help You!!!

Rodent Control in St Albans

We were out doing some rodent proofing for a customer the other day. Rodents are very adept at getting into properties. Particularly during the colder months they look for shelter and food searching for any gaps or holes to squeeze through. I have added a video of some of the work I have done which shows how to avoid a problem or to stop them coming back.

fast Friendly service and very thorough - thoroughly recommend Luis



Excellent service. Called about a wasp nest around midday and Luis had sorted it out by the evening.


Mr Martin

My wife and I were delighted with the friendly, knowledgeable and efficient manner in which Luis Lamas of Pestforce St Albans dealt with a large number of honey bees inhabiting a well-established nest in the chimney of our house in Welwyn, Herts. With his vacuum equipment, Luis was able to catch the majority of the bees for transport them to a different site and introduction to another colony. He then sealed the entry and exit holes used by the bees to nest in our chimney. We are now, thankfully, free from unwanted bees and would be entirely happy to recommend Luis Lamas and Pestforce to other householders facing a similar situation.

to another colony.

Luis was really efficient. We contacted him in the morning about a wasps' nest and he had treated it by the afternoon. He gave us clear advice on the next steps and asked us to call him if there were any more wasps. There weren't anymore.


Andersen Tuffnell

I'm so glad I called Luis. He was kind, calm and professional to deal with. Most importantly though he diagnosed that we had a rat problem in our attic and under our floorboards and knew how to not only resolve this, but how to prevent it happening again.

Luis has been visiting my property to help me with a challenging pest problem since earlier this year. I would have no hesitation in recommending him. Luis has a vast amount of technical expertise and knowledge, which he used thoughtfully and with skill to tackle the pest problem which was presented to him at my property. He clearly communicated to me what his strategy was, and always kept me updated with developments throughout the process. He was generous with him time on each occasion. Furthermore, Luis was always punctual and before each scheduled appointment sent me a text half an hour before to confirm that he was on his way.

No suspicious smells yet!

Best wishes and thanks again!

Luis demonstrated truly professional service. Luis was very responsive. Luis definitely is expert in his field. Very deligent.



We asked Luis Lamas to attend one of our stores on the same day to remove the dead rat from the trap, we didn't have a contract in place with Pestforce but he was happy to help, friendly, approachable and very easy to deal with when arranging payments, etc. Good price too, unlike Rentokil! Will definitely consider using for this and other stores.



Honest advice and a fantastic service and I will definitely use Luis again, if I need to.

Very happy with the service.
Rat problem was identified, treated and then resolved and no problems since.

Would definitely be using again if needed.


Armando Saliba

Highly recommend Luis. He’s very knowledgeable and trustworthy


Sarah B

After our cat brought fleas into the house (which were in the carpets, furniture, everywhere), I had tried all home and supermarket remedies to no avail, wasting more than £100. Poor cat couldn't sleep for scratching, either.
Luis did the job really quickly for about £70, and got rid of fleas completely. He then gave me preventative tips, such as getting proper flea treatment from the vet for our cat as supermarket-bought versions often stop working after a week. This was just over 18 months ago and no problems ever since.
Another pest control firm I rang first wanted to charge almost £800 (yes, really!) to do treat the whole house. Stick with Luis for a far more professional job at a far better price.


Kate W.

Luis responded to my call and was at my house within 2 hours. He was calm, reassuring and clearly very knowledgeable. He sorted the problem with minimum of fuss, explained how the process would work and then returned as promised to offer analysis and confirm completion of the job! Would happily recommend him to anyone that needed his services


Jonny Friedman

An excellent service, we were so impressed by Lois. He gave expert advice re the siting of bird feeders I had hanging close to the house. Identified the problem immediately and paid particular attention to the treatment he was going to use because of the two dogs we have.
Made suggestions re adaptations we needed to make to our garage door and carried out the work.
Very pleasant and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending him.
Always punctual.


Mrs Browne

Excellent service. Really responsive, helpful, knowledgable and flexible to fit in with crazy work schedule.


Sue Kirsch

I recommend Luis fully. He is incredibly thorough, knowledgeable and responsive by phone and email. I just wish I had I contacted him earlier! He’s a good guy too. Many, many thanks.


David Lancefield

I have used Luis for a number of years, his service is excellent, very quick/responsive and professional.

His report and treatment plan is well detailed.

Will definitely recommend using Luis(Pestforce).


Mr Uddin

Luis was incredibly helpful and professional, his friendly advise, knowledge and expertise were simply perfect. I would highly recommend him to anyone!



Great service from Luis, he responded to my enquiry straight away and visited promptly. After a few visits he’d sorted the problem. Definitely recommend for any pest issues.



Mr Lamas provided an excellent service. Extremely thorough and knowledgeable. Reassured us throughout his visits to deal with rat problem.


Mrs Ellinor

A very professional and polite gentleman, Luis arrived promptly and dealt with our situation quickly. Thank you very muc


Warren Ashwood

We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Luis for any pest control situation. After building a kitchen extension two years ago, we have had an ongoing issue off and on with rats in our extension roof and cavity walls, rats dying in inaccessible places (causing maggots and a horrendous smell for weeks) and after repeated visits from the council (who did nothing other than put down bait and tell us it was mice) we were at our wits end. During his first visit Luis spent over two hours investigating the house both internally and externally. He told us he would get to the bottom of the problem and he did! Luis is a rare breed of professional these days, he is not a clock watcher, will just get on with what needs to be done and is extremely thorough in his work. He has been on the roof, head in walls and (together with his recommended drain specialist) down drains with cameras to ferret out the access point of the rats. He does not request he is paid until the job is done either, so this provides peace of mind he will do his utmost best to solve the problem for you. Luis is reliable, communicates well and was very considerate and supportive during what was a very stressful time for us. We are now rodent free for the first time in two years and it is amazing!! No more scratching noises above our heads day and night!! Thank you Luis, we shall forever be grateful to you for all you have done and will be recommending you to anyone with a similar problem.



Luis, came out on a Sunday to take a look at the nesting we had in the roof. Problem solved within the hour, accompanied by friendly and informative service.



Would highly recommend Luis . He came out to us at 8 o clock in the evening, found the source of the problem and solved it . Explained everything, was very professional , he clearly knows his stuff ! Thank you Luis !


Lucie Solano

Please ignore my previous review as I submitted an incorrect rating.
I found Luis to be both very professional and passionate and well as very friendly and willing to share his knowledge or rates and give sound advice.
He eradicated the problem where others in the past have failed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else.
His services is first class.


Paula Francis

I found Luis to be very professional and passionate about his work. He did an amazing job and has eradicated the problem where others in the past have failed. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else.
His service is first class.


Paula Francis

Luis was both professional & passionate about the job. He completely sorted out the problem, where others in the past have failed. He explained everything in great detail plus very reasonable cost wise.

Yes I would recommend


Paula Francis AL9 5AH

Luis did an excellent job and at a very short notice. He immediately found the root cause of the problem and solved it. I would definetely recommend him. Thank you Luis.



Luis correctly identified honey bees in a disused chimney. While waiting for scaffolding to be erected he advised on measures to prevent bees getting into the house. He removed the bees and their honey, sealed the disused chimneys to prevent further infestation and painted the chimney stack which is inaccessible except with scaffolding. An excellent job carried out with good will.



Attended my home to deal with my fear of Spiders. Spent time going through process and was very supportive.
Carried out the works and left home very tidy.
Will use again and will recommend. Reasonably priced and done inside and outside for me.


Caroline inch

We have had a lot of trouble with ants particular flying ones in the house. We called in Luis who identified these as black garden ants with a nest somewhere in the house. He was able to treat the areas where they were seen and we have not had any trouble since. Luis is very knowledgeable about different types of ants and other pests. I have no hesitation in recommending his services


Steve Griffiths

Luis Lamas has been excellent. I've had an ongoing problem with vermin in walls for years & have used numerous companies. I finally seem to have found someone that really knows what they are doing.

Yes I would recommend


Linda Ritchie AL1

Always gives A* service.

Yes I would recommend


Mrs Forrester. AL5

I have used Luis over the last few years when we have had a problem with wasp nests. He has always responded quickly and been most friendly. I would highly recommend to contact him with regards to pest control.


Sarah Phillips

Fantastic service, friendly and informative, would definitely recommend. I've used Luis for a long time now and he has treated all our pest issues quick and efficiently. Couldn't live in this house without him.


Kate Robb

Luis responded promptly to our request for help, and was able to come round and inspect the problem at very short notice. We had heard movement and chirping noises in our flat roof and were concerned about the possibility of mice, squirrels or birds on the roof. Luis examined the rooftop and various vents/grills and after a thorough inspection of the property he was able to conclude that we had bats nestling in the gap under our roof. Obviously bats are a protected species so Luis was unable to remove them, but he did put our minds at rest by patiently and clearly explaining how bats are not a threat to the property itself or the people inside. He also gave us a link to the UK Bats Society for further information. We're very grateful to his rapid response, detailed investigation and help. He's clearly very knowledgable and enthusiastic about his profession and is friendly, considerate and reasonably priced to boot. Cannot recommend him highly enough!


Tim Andrews

I am writing to thank Mr. Luis Lamas for his outstanding work! We had a recurring infestation of rodents over a period of 20 years which defied all attempts to eradicate--until a neighbour recommended Luis.  His thoroughness and complete professionalism were exemplary, and he identified the root problem which we were then able to correct, once and for all!  We are deeply grateful to Luis, whose great expertise and thorough dedication have eliminated the problem.  His courtesy and thoughtful consideration were of the highest order and we remain deeply appreciative.  We cannot recommend him highly enough! 


Tim Grana, St Albans

To Pestforce

I had a few different well-known companies advise and quote on an ant issue back in the idea where they got the prices from as I could have gone on holiday with some of their quotes.

I called out Luis Lamas from Pestforce to deal with the ant issue he was very professional in his work and manner taking his time to explain everything from start to finish and so much cheaper than the ridiculous quotes I'd had before.

He said he could sort the issue out with 1 treatment and that's exactly what he did.

I again last week called Luis out for mice issues in my loft he was yet again professional and took the time to explain the procedure.  fingers crossed this issue will also be resolved.

I would highly recommend him to anybody needing pest control. 


Bambos Antoniou

I wanted to say a big Thank You to Luis Lamas for some excellent work Luis carried out for me on my property in Harpenden.

I've had a very upsetting experience with rats returning every year when the weather gets cold to my house. Over the years I've had endless visits from the local council who just simply put rat poison down each time but never resolved the underlying issue.

Luis was adamant he was going to get to the bottom of the problem and trace where the rats were entering and leaving. He made me feel that he really wanted to help get to the bottom of the problem once and for all, and so he has. I can't believe it. I'm now sleeping at night not hearing noises in the attic and under floorboards.

I can't thank Luis enough for being so professional, helpful and friendly.

He was very thorough and reassuring.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him, and if they ever find another way in, I know who to call! Fingers crossed of course they won't!!!


Barbara Harpenden

Dear Luis,

Thank you for your very effective treatment of the large wasp nest in the loft space. The treatment was very quickly effective with no more wasps in less than 24 hours. I thank you for your friendly, considerate, informed and professional manner in dealing with this problem. On a Sunday too! Excellent, economic, service.



"Luis Lamas, what a lovely man! First and foremost, Luis will determinedly fix the problem. We had a problem with rats and Luis dealt with it. Luis was sensitive to the stressful situation and was very patient when listening to how the rats had impacted our lives. Luis asked helpful questions and made pertinent recommendations based on his vast experience.  I trusted Luis to so solve our rat problem and he did. Thank you so much. I'm ever grateful."


Mrs Kelway - St Albans

I checked in my loft today and the queen wasp has gone. Your work is good, so now I can continue with my Amateur Radio aerials, thank you. If ever you are nearby and want a cuppa then do call in and I will explain the real story of the Piper of Hamlin... I've visited Hamlin. There's always a welcome for you here Luis.


Your friend, Bob Houlston

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Luis for resolving our squirrel problem.

I was hugely impressed with his knowledge and professionalism from start to finish together with his willingness to go the extra mile in terms of customer service.

At a time when such high standards of service are hard to find I would have no hesitation in recommending Pestforce St.Albans to anyone !

Thanks again Luis!


Steve Greatorex

A very overdue e-mail to say thank you to Luis Lamas for his help with our pest issue. We unfortunately had a rat issue when we first moved into our house - I was very heavily pregnant - Luis was at our house immediately and found the issue straight away - he then proofed the rest of the outside of the house. 

When we have had similar issues more recently (through no fault of Luis), we've called Luis straight away and he has always responded quickly and given us an excellent service - even at the weekends.

He is not only very knowledgable and dedicated to what he does but also very reassuring with something that is very difficult to stay calm about. I would certainly recommend Luis to anyone who has a pest issue.



Customer in Redbourn


I would like to send a message saying how pleased we are with the service we received form you. We have had no recurrence of the bee infestation and the roof space is still wasp-free. Your attendance on the Sunday evening, just a few hours after we rang you, was very much appreciated. Also, when our roofer almost had to stop work, your quick response to the wasps was superb. We really are very, very impressed and found your knowledge, expertise and professionalism very reassuring. We will certainly use you again when we have to.

Best wishes,

J P Hughes


J P Hughes


I would like you to know how very pleased I was with the service I got from Mr Lamas, he was both reassuring, courteous and very good at his job. This day and age you're lucky if you get one of those, never mind all three.

You are lucky to have such a worker and I hope you will let it be known.

THANKS, Sonia Simmons


Sonia Simmons

Luis visited my property today to deal with a wasps nest. As always, then you find out you have two!!

No problem for Luis…

Super fast and efficient service , courteous and very knowledgable.

Gave some good advise on ants in the garden too!

Super job….. may see him again this simmer!! Hopefully with a further discount!!


Des - St Albans

Hi, We'd just like to say say a big thank you to Luis Lomas who has helped us over the year to get rid of mice, bees and rats! He's been very helpful, thorough and professional. Emma and Phil White


Emma White

Dear Sir

I wanted to write you a quick email in praise of your employee Luis Lamas (St Albans operative).

A few days ago, it became apparent we had a problem with honey bees. The two other pest control 'experts' I contacted had no interest in helping us, advising me to contact a bee keeper. Luckily, through a Google search (and fearing there was no one who could help) I found Pest Force - and Luis in particular.

Leaving him a voice mail message on his phone, he called me back almost straight away and was available to come round the very next day - doubly impressive given that this was a Saturday. Arriving at our house on time at 7pm, Luis immediately knew what the problem was and how to deal with it, administering smoke followed by two different - yet highly effective - treatments. To my amazement, he then climbed up onto the roof and sealed up the point of entry to the chimney breast where the bees had built their home.

To put it simply, Luis completely and utterly sorted out the problem 100%. No fuss, no bother and - unlike the other companies I made the mistake of contacting - no excuses as to why he couldn't help. An amazing service, made all the more amazing considering that the price he first quoted was the price we paid - even given that he had to get his ladders out and get onto the roof.

The bottom line is, Luis is a credit to your company. What he doesn't know about pests (whether it's bees, wasps, rats or whatever) is not worth knowing. But more than that, he has a real dedication to what he does and takes an enormous amount of pride in his work. He is thorough, precise, knowledgeable, conscientious and attentive - even to the point where he actually repaired a couple of roof tiles that had been inadvertently broken when he put his ladder on our roof. Now the tiles look even better than before he arrived!

An amazing guy, incredible pest control expert and someone who makes the competition look like the amateurs they are. Thank you Luis - you helped us out immeasurably.


Dave Washer


I just wanted to thank Pest Force and Luis for all the work he has done for me.
I had a bed bug infestation when I moved back into my house after renting it out to horrible dirty tenants. Not knowing what exactly was bitting me I had my suspicions that it might have been bedbugs, when I squashed a bug and blood came squishing out I contacted Pest Force.

The speedy response and visit was very much appreciated. Luis explained very thoroughly what the little critters were and the best steps to exterminate them. He was extremely professional, steaming cleaning all the skirting boards in the whole house and furniture before, applying the chemicals. After the first visit I was not bitten again, however we decided to have a second treatment just in case any survived and were in the infancy phase. I would highly recommend you call up Luis (St Albans branch) if you have any pests, bugs or rodents. He was my superhero bedbug exterminated :).




W (Hatfield)

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed I was with the services of Luis Lamas today here in St Albans when we suspected we might have a wasp nest. Luis was very understanding and patient and very thorough in his investigations - inspecting both the loft and the outside of the house at roof level. Although we did not have a nest he found two old ones in the roof space and located the nest in a house a few doors down - we were just getting a few random ones as all the houses look alike and the wasps were confused. Luis is  very knowledgeable about his work and very professional in his approach - I learnt a lot today about the habits of the wasp!I would not hesitate in recommending him to friends and family and will certainly use him again if the need arises.

Kind regards
Sheila Keane

Sheila Keane, St Albans

Good morning Lindsey,


Just a quick email to say Thank you so much. Luis came out last night and sorted the problem. What an amazing man. Spent a good ten ,fifteen mins with my son talking about wasps and bees.

Fantastic service.


Thank you Luis!







I can not praise this chap more. He did an excellent job for us - he went over and above to ensure the correct noisy bees nest was dealt with, coming back to our property on a weekend evening.  He was very polite and kind. A credit to your brand. 


Mrs C Griffiths

A very big thank you to Luis Lamas for getting rid of my rats. He came and dealt with the whole situation so calmly without any drama, it was such a relief to speak to someone who answered all my questions . He is so professional and enthusiastic about his work . I cannot recommend him highly enough. Should I ever have any other problems I will definitely call Pestforce as I know their employees are tip top people.


Norma Groom Ct. St Albans

Luis thank you for your quick response to the problem we had with the bees nest above our back door the Friday before last.

You did say that there might be a few about the following morning but I have to say that there were a couple but after that we didnt see anymore.

So thank you once again for your swift attention and complete success to our problem so that we can once again use our backdoor,patio and garden.

I would recommend you to anyone who has problems with pests and I have kept a note of your website so that if we need you again for anything we can get can get back to you,although hopefully not a for a long time.

Following a natural minor panic when we heard scratching sounds in our ceilings, we found PestForce’s details on the internet. The first good sign was when we located the actual name and number and photo of our local PestForce Agent, Luis Lamas. The second good sign was a rapid response from Luis personally soon after our initial phone inquiry on a Sunday night. The third was having Luis attend the following day to see what the problem might be and coming fully equipped to deal with pretty much anything.

The good news was that it was mice, not rats. The bad news was that there were likely to be (much) more than just one and multiplying rapidly! Luis walked us around our property and showed us all the points in the brickwork where they may have entered. He freely shared what is obviously a big store of knowledge and showed pride in his work. He gave us a plan for dealing with the problem with the firm assurance that it could be solved pretty decisively.

On that day and over the next 3 weeks, Luis came and laid bait, checked the lofts and roof spaces and gradually our scratching sounds diminished to nothing. His systematic approach culminated in neatly repairing and sealing all of the brickwork around the house and repairing gaps in the roof edges as well as re-levelling the entrance floor to the garage where the garage door seals where he felt the mice initially entered the property.

His fees were very reasonable and he refused to be paid until the job was completed. Even then, he promised to put us on his rounds and come and periodically check that all was ok when he was next in the area.

Big, grateful thank you, Luis, for your friendly and exemplary service.

I would like to thank Luis Lamas for the very efficient job he did in getting rid of mice in my roof.
The mice had started to make home in the eves of our bedroom, so it was very disturbing!
Luis is a credit to your company, very easy to deal with and excellent at his job.
He is knowledgeable, and thorough.
I would recommend anyone with a pest problem to call Pestforce.
Yours sincerely

I would just like to say how pleased we have been with Luis Lamas over the last few months. We had a visitation by rats which was traumatic and horrible. I contacted Luis having read the other testimonials online and I can guarantee that they are no exaggeration! Luis was a wonderfully calming influence. He came whenever I had a "wobbly" - evenings, Sundays, three days in a row if needed - nothing prevented him from turning out to deal with the latest turn in events. We had stubborn rodents but Luis was persistent and sure enough we are now clear of them Not only were our rodents dealt with, but Luis surveyed our property thoroughly for the point of entry, proofed us against further incursions and remedied the damage that had been done to various doors and carpets. I cannot praise him highly enough for his dedication to the job, his professionalism and his friendly and calming manner He is extremely knowledgeable and so reassuring. If you are having a pest crisis, contact Luis, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. He is a credit to Pestforce and we are indebted to him! He is a credit to Pestforce and we are indebted to him!

Hi... I hope you don't mind me contacting you but I just wanted to say how absolutely lovely and kind your Pest Control man Luis Lamas is.  He very kindly called to my home yesterday and was so understanding when I phoned him earlier in the day and when he arrived. I felt so much better for speaking with him and I'm very reassured that what he has done in terms of leaving bait for the rat problem I have will definitely do the trick in combatting the problem.  I contacted several companies before finding Luis online and I have to say none of them even seemed to remotely care about my circumstances and being that I am absolutely petrified of rats and live alone, had over a week of sleepless nights due to nerves wondering what was scratching in my walls, also being Friday too, no one took this into account and told me Monday at the earliest ..... I wish I had contacted Luis much much sooner as he was truly so understanding when I phoned and so lovely when he called, he's an absolute sweetheart and I am so grateful to him and to yourselves for such an incredibly swift and excellent customer care service....I'm still not sleeping as it is very early days and I understand this will potentially take some time to resolve but for someone to reassure me over this, considering my true pure fear of rats, anyone who knows me would say it is an impossibility to reassure me about them, but he has and I think you are extremely fortunate to have such a lovely, caring and hard working, efficient person working for you.
Kind regards and my heartfelt thanks for such a wonderful customer care service.

I would just like to pass on my sincere thanks to Luis Lamas for his excellent work last night. After calling him at 10.45pm with a huge infestation of maggots, they had come out of my compost bin and were all over my house wall, front steps door etc, he appeared very promptly and started to clear them. He finally finished at 1am and I would like to pass on his excellent, professional manor and caring attitude to myself, who home alone, was rather distressed and unsure what to do.

I would definitely recommend him and your company for your services, should the need arise again.
Thanks once again.
