Do everything out of the public eye... Behind bushes, the garbage cans, any kind of cover and don't blab about it. And those prices are a bit high, but you're in Mass...
What to do with the body? Put it in a black garbage bag and bury it in another bag of trash and put it out in the trash.
Yeah, I know. It ain't easy to kill anything. But it isn't as though it's endangered or anything... Besides, if you get one that digs by your foundation, you could have a basement wall collapse, it's happened!
Ask around and see if you can get "Giant Killers." It's a "bomb" of sorts, you light it like a firecracker, stuff it in their burrow and cover the hole with a shovel full of dirt. It kills what's in there! You can't use this next to a habitable building, you can't have the fumes leak into a structure. Not sure if you can get them in Mass, but probably in NH.
