I inform the customer that Merit works systemicaly
and as such takes out the guess work of using contact
pesticides. I also tell them that it will require two
applications two months apart. Merit is a great product
not only because it works this way but the ld50(toxicity)
for mammals is much lower than say diazinon. As the grubs
eat the roots of the grass they are quickly killed. I think
within two hours. I have used this for the past couple of
years and have experienced excellent results. Also let
them know its much cheaper than replacing the grass.
as for pricing i let them know it is an expensive chemical
and as such i charge more for this. You should work out
your overhead and determine what is your breakeven point
and work from there.
