Lontrel is a GUP. Therefore it is legal for anyone to buy without a pesticide license just like all of the pesticides at Home Cheapo Etc Etc. Where you apply those chemicals is what the license is all about. The Chemical lobby is such that this will never change and that is wrong in my opinion.

You can legally apply GUP (general use pesticides) to your own property.

Try your local Lesco.

Sorry but the way chemicals come and go off the market I can't aways keep up. I remember hearing something about Lontrel going off market. However it is listed on the Dow website. I have some Lontrel but never use it. It is a good product, but I have found the only thing I need it for is Black Medic. Black Medic is a product of low nitrogen and that has not been a problem for me since I went to slow release granules.

Lontrel is clopyralid which is the same active ingredient that caused Confront to lose it's residential use. Neither has been taken off the market. Just the residential use prtion of the label has been removed. As such, some sales/distributors will choose to no longer sell it. The other Confront active ingredient is Trichlopyr & is still OK for residential use.

DOW's "replacement" for Clopyralid is "Fluroxypyr" & will be marketed under the trade name Spotlight (26.2% fluroxxypyr). The bottle I have here on my desk carries a Warning label due "substantial but temporary eye injury". So it appears to be less dangerous than 2,4-d in that respect.
