    Hello everyone,

    I am planning on doing a bed cleanup job for a client that has a ton of this stuff growing up in between his plants. We will obviously try to pull whatever we can and we will put snapshot down afterward but those weeds with taproots almost always come back.

    Any suggestions how to get rid of them? Someone said to drip undiluted glyphosate on the cut stem? Any ideas?

    That would do it, but I wouldn't use undiluted for thistle. It can be mixed and do that as well. It may have to be a little stronger (like a brush mix), but it will do it.
