    I am hoping to get my appilcation license here in the near future, and I was wondering what you guys charge per square foot to put down the product. I was told by one of my friends that he charges $3.00/sq ft plus material cost.

    Also, do you guys add anything on for man-hours or traveling time too?

    Thanks for your help!

    Try $5.50 to 7.00 per foot.

    $3.00/sqft???? So if you have a 60'x120' lot 7200sqftx3.00=$21,600 is this per application? yearly or lifetime?

    You got your decimal point in the wrong place, or a typo.

    .004 / sqft / chemical, or $4.00 / 1000 sqft.

    OK, now that I figured out some numbers-that does seem kind of high. What do you guys normally charge per square foot? I'm just trying to get a rough estimate.
