Potential Profitability of Goose Control Businesses with Flight Control®Plus
We will do seven (7) applications per year on a yearly contract basis. That the customer will pay $350/acre/application. This may vary as the acreage gets larger.
We will apply at a rate of one (1) gallon per acre on the first application, and a half (1/2) gallon per acre on the remaining six (6) applications. That means we use a total of 4 gallons/acre/yea
We assume the applicator can buy from a distributor at a price of $180.00/gallon (this assumes an ongoing relationship with a Flight Control®Plus distributor), if they buy in 2 ½ gallon containers, 5 gallons at a time.
We assume the average labor cost will be $18.00 per hour.
We assume one person can handle the application.
We assume it will require 1 and ½ hours of application and travel time for an acre job. We have added ¼ of an hour of additional time per additional acre, i.e. 3 acres require 2 hours.
We assume the potential Flight Control®Plus applicator will have the proper spraying equipment that can effectively dispense the product at proper rates.
