Reply To: Fee's for clearing out squirrels and other pests
I guess I should have included the fact that most of the people requesting removal are either people I know, or someone a personal relative interacts with or works for.
I never really considered a license or insurance because its kind of just been a “whatever” sort of deal. They just paid me for time, as kind of a good will gesture, not really as a business or a “serious” source of income.
That brings me to the original question. Since I have done it for basically family and friends, the word gets around…others have started to ask and I have said “no” up to this point. I thought about maybe turning it into a side business and that is why I was asking about fee’s.
I would love at that point to get insurance on myself, and if this state requires it, a license. But don’t want to waste the time if its $25 for the day kind of thing. I usually go out for about 3-4 hours. Any help on what to expect money wise or what is reasonable would be great.
