    I've been asked by a new client with a large parking lot (Renovated Walmart Building) to spray some weed killer on their parking lot cracks. I have a Stihl backpack sprayer and they are able to furnish the chemical or said they would allow me to purchase it and charge them for it. What I'm wondering is what is the best arrangement is for pricing labor cost? I'm not sure what a decent rate is for a smaller town of 15,000 people in a rural community in Iowa.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Is that with you as the supplier "supplying" the chemicals?

    Either way, price it to not to have to do it. If you get oh well you'll make good money

    K, thanks for the info....Another question I have is, I have a Stihl backpack sprayer that I plan on using, would I just pour the chemical in there from the jug or do I have to do anything else that I'm not aware of? Or is there any reason to dilute it?

    If you don't have knowledge of chemicals then you have no buisness applying them. Your last post has indicated to everyone on here that you are an unlicensed individual and therefore it would be illegal for you to spray any herbicide. Contact a licensed individual to do the app for you. Otherwise, get licensed. You'll likely be ripped to shreds here directly by someone reading your post. Good luck.
