    I'm trimming some fig ivy off of a synthetic stucco sided house, and it's leaving small brown "roots" everywhere it was attached to the house. Any suggestions for getting them off? The stucco is so thin, I don't want to scrub it with a brush.

    Leave the roots a couple of weeks,if the've been cut they should dry up and come off easier,dont try and pull them off as you cut them they cling on like spiderman and will probably bring the stucco off too.

    Any experience with Atrimmec or another pgr on fig ivy? It's listed for english ivy. I suspect it will work, but haven't tried it yet.
