    You will typically have to do it 3 times before the weed is completely dead and wont come back. If you dont get too many replies..try moving this to the organic lawn care thread.

    It worked for me..i hated it though...I wont do it again unless the customer PAYS for it..i would rather carry around my backpack sprayer than a large tank and wand. Even better for drives..a small aerosal can with some killer in it. just my .02

    You'll spend more on propane than on RoundUp in the long run!

    Ok, thanks. Sounds like it's a no go.

    Those things make starting a brush pile fire a breeze!
