Affordable and Effective Pest Control

Does your property have an insect infestation? A bees’ nest? Perhaps you’re at your wit’s end with vermin or foxes. Affordable, effective, and humane pest control ensures pests don’t become a pain.

We all know that hygiene, safety, and structural security are among the three most important aspects of any property. Thanks to education and better building standards, many of us now take these things for granted.

It can come as a shock, then, to find out that your home or property is threatened by a pest or insect infestation. Don’t panic – our pest control professionals are here to help.

With over 40 years of experience, and operating 24/7 from our two branches in St. Albans and Colchester, The Verminator is the first stop for reliable pest, insect, and rodent control. We are the leading independent choice for safe, effective, and humane pest control in St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Colchester, Braintree and beyond.

Comprehensive 24/7 cover for the St Albans and Colchester areas.

Pest and insect control used to be a pretty messy job and there are a number of legal restrictions preventing homeowners from managing pest problems directly.

  • "I would like to place on record my experience with The Verminator. In December during the spell of extreme cold weather, I found it necessary to contact your company as I could here movement in my loft. After speaking with Tim, he turned up the next day to survey the loft and give his recommendations. I would just like to say I found him to be a very courteous and friendly man, who explained the situation and formed a plan of action. Less than a month later the infestation has gone and we can return to normality and no more disrupted nights. Thanks so very much".

  • "We had a Glis Glis problem and no matter what we did we couldn’t deter the little fellas. My friend recommended The Verminator to us after using him for a wasp nest. We were so pleased with his service that we've recommended him to all our friends and family". "Since having Tim from the Verminator UK on the course on a regular basis we have no problem with moles or rabbit damage".
