    We have a customer with fleas and billbugs on their yard. Were going to treat both. His yard is 800 sq feet. Was thinking around 125.00 total for labor and supplies.

    Does that sound right or am i over charging / under charging?

    Thank you all!

    He's a new customer, mowed three times this year.

    If you are licensed to spray...Chemicals should cost around two dollars for 800 sqft. (or do you mean 8000 sqft)?
    Backpack sprayer should be able to do about 1000 sqft per minute.

    Sounds about right for your benefit. It should take around 30 minutes if you do 8000 sqft after a couple refills with new chemical and water. Add your cost of chemicals and adda markup for going to the dealer and buying the chemical. Talstar?
