in your business? which service is ranked highest to lowest.

for me:

Mole trapping is about 35 percent, bird exclusions are about the same, and bat exclusions are about 30 percent.

For me it's gray squirrels, skunks and beavers. I have a spattering of other animals but the big three are as said.

Paul I double checked your math for you and you do add up to 100%. LOL

Curious, is that percentage of revenue or jobs?

We are very seasonal with our work as are most businesses of our type. Birds in vents are beginning, mole work is about to begin big time, we have some bat work already scheduled for late April/ early May. Some ghog jobs are coming in already. Hard to give percentages as we are all over the place at times with various work.
