What help exactly are you asking for? You'll need to get your sub to give you the pricing that he will charge you, so you can determine your mark up & then bid it. Are you asking what the poisons are & do?

Need bid on chemicals

BRL
I dont care what the chemicals are cause I will let a professional handle that end. I just need to know who much each of these applications will cost me. I dont want a professional to try to screw me over, so I would like to have a ballpark figure as to the charge of each of the items that I mentioned. Again, I dont know anything about any of these chemicals so any help on the pricing would be greatly appreciated.

If you get a true 'professional' to do the work for you, they will not 'screw you over'.

This will take me about an hour to work up a price.

I get $50/hour min. for my time. If you want to wire me $50
I will be glad to give you the information you need.

I'll do it for $40.00 LOL. What you need to do is be like any savvy customer that you may have. Find 3 or more reputable application companies in your area and get quotes from them. Make them aware that you are getting quotes from others and I'm sure you won't get screwed over. Pricing varies too much from region to region, so if I or Stone gave you our price, it really doesn't help you in any way. You're not getting screwed over, the price you get from a sub is the price it is to have it done by someone else. Good luck.

LOL

Hey man, I've got a lower overhead than you.

Darn,
I went from receiving one of the only compliments I've ever seen him dish out, to receiving his worst condemnation within 24 hours. I'm back where I belong again, with the lamers.

Estimates

Its amazing to me how people can get completely off the subject. Do yall not give free estimates in your business when someone calls you to get a quote? Around here you would be laughed right out of business if you charged for an estimate. Sorry to bother you with this matter.

Most businesses provide free estimates after screening and knowing they have a chance to get the job.

Call a local professional who'll have a shot at DOING the work and LOOKING at the site.

You'll probably get better information.
