Grand Total                                 \$0.00

CAN YOU AFFORD TO TREAT FOR FIRE ANTS

Grand Total/ Number of Acres in Operation =         #DIV/0!     Per Acre in Losses

If loss per acre is more than \$15, you can probably make money by treating entire place.
If loss per acre is less than \$15, pinpoint where these losses occur and only treat those areas.
