    What inventory is available locally is a plus, pulling the label and knowing what target pest were, use rate etc etc where all great and something I wish was still there. All this info we can of course find elsewhere if you know what you are already looking for, but the website was great as you could just browse and find products that may work just as good at a better cost for you.
    If they put the price it would be great but we all know that we each potentially pay a little different than the price listed...but it was handy on figuring what product gave you the most bang for your buck.
    IMHO Lesco is generally is not the cheapest of the suppliers ...but being able to use there website for research and cost led me to buy from them many times even though they were slightly higher.

    This is why I purchase from BWI!!
    Their website is vast......if you have an account! Put an order in on Monday and the shipment will be arriving in a day or two. This is respects that the distribution center is a couple hundred miles from me.
    They drop ship it too your door.

    The basic information for fertilizers, pesticides, etc, etc can be found by going to “Resources And Services, Technical Support.”

    The cross reference charts for products and the associated pest issue can be found in the “2011-2012 Product Catalog” under “Products.” Attached is a PDF copy of these charts from pages 280-305 of the catalog.

    Why is it so hard for people to understand that "Lesco" no longer exists? Lesco went out of business 4 years ago. JDL bought the name and closed most of the Lesco locations. Their is no longer ANY members of Lesco Corporate management involved and JDL just uses the Lesco name soley as a brand. JDL is not a fertilizer company nor do they want to be one

    JDL or Lesco is overrated and overpriced, their web site is impossible to negotiate and get information, even on their hardware.

    We get all our chemicals & fertilizer from Helena.

    i'm confused as well. i spent the last few days looking up products by name. found all the item #'s label info and msds info i needed. https://www.johndeerelandscapes.com/home/products/msds-labels.aspx i did like the old lesco site better, i thought they had some prices on there back then.
