    What’s it Worth?

    I'm getting ready to add pest control services to my termite company. One problem – I’m not sure what or how to charge for these services. I know you can’t do that either, but maybe you can shed some light on this for me?.

    Man with a Van

    Is it legal to transport pesticides in the back of a van or station wagon? If so, does it need to be in an airtight box in the back?

    Off To A Good Start

    I am new at the business and in a semi-small town. Any advice on getting customers? Advertising? Or do you think pounding on doors is better?

    The Path to Professionalism

    In your opinion, what is the difference between a pest control technician and a "spray jockey" or a "Dale Gribble" type besides the official stuff like training and accreditation.

    Prices and Flexibility

    I want to have a set price for carpenter ant work and sell them over the phone to potential customers. I am just wondering if it is necessary to do an inspection first. I am afraid if I sell them over the phone I might be in violation of some state law. Can you find out?

    Chemicals Are Not Always The Answer

    Not a question, but just a comment. Thank you for mentioning the most important (okay, the 2nd most important) tool for killing cockroaches in reference to It's A Mall World. That would be KNEEPADS. And obviously, the most important tool is a great flashlight.
