Imidacloprid (marketed by Bayer CropScience as Gaucho, Mallet, Merit, Nuprid, Prothor, Turfthor, Confidor, Conguard, Dominion 2L, Hachikusan, Premise, Prothor, Provado, Intercept, and Winner) is one of the most widely used insecticides in agriculture and can be applied by soil injection, tree injection, application to the skin, or broadcast foliar or ground application as a granular or liquid formulation or as a pesticide-coated seed treatment.


In the spirit of the season, you can make a difference in the lives of people in our community with critical needs for safe and livable shelter. Our mission of providing home repairs/rehabs depends upon the financial support of folks who are able and willing to assist in this important endeavor. At this time, more than ever, we are in serious need of funds to help these desperate folks. Currently, we are waiting on funds to fill four requests for wheelchair ramps, costing approximately $2,000 each. Please help with these requests by sending your tax deductible gifts to: P.O. Box 1585, Franklin, NC 28744

Another way you can provide perpetual monetary assitance is by joining our Carpenters Club through which you would make monthly donations.
