Why Do You Charge The Prices You Do?
Wildlife Control is a specialty business. It requires a unique set of skills and more knowledge than most people realize.
It is also a field with unique risks. Nuisance wildlife control operators take care of difficult problems that few people
can properly or safely handle. I am not some backwoods bucktoothed yokel trapper. I am a college educated and state licensed
professional. People seem to have no problem paying the electrician or plumber for their skills, and you won't find them crawling
in a hot attic to remove a litter of raccoons with an angry mother raccoon lurking nearby!
Many people have the mindset that wild animal problems
should be taken care of for free. This stems from the time when state and county agencies did indeed take care of wild animal
problems. However, as the problem grew, they stopped providing this service, and it is now in the hands of the private sector
- the nuisance wildlife trapper. I don't get state funding. No one is giving me a truck, traps, equipment, gasoline, insurance,
phone service, advertising, and the myriad of other expenses necessary to run a professional operation. I must pay for these
things myself. Some people seem to understand this, and others don't.
I feel a little exasperated when a surprised person on
the telephone utters, "You mean I got to pay for this?". Yes, you do, but please be aware that you are paying for a special
service. I find that all of my customers feel that they have received a very good value, after they talk to me in person,
and get their problem quickly and professionally taken care of.
