    I'm located in Sarasota, FL.

    Can you guys help me to identify this weed and What can I use to kill it?

    QuickPro Round-Up is not working on it...

    asparagus fern It would be faster and cheaper to hand pull it.

    glyphosate will kill it.

    It will, but the shade and being over watered from the pool is going to be tuff. I see some mold on the patio so I can assume it's saturated back there.

    What ratio do you guys use
    I'm using Roundup Quickpro, it's not working...

    I'm using 1.5oz per gallon, do you guys recommend using more per gallon?

    Thank you

    No don’t add more. That would just be a waste of money. Mix it like the directions say.

    I vote for fire! :yow!:

    Harbor Freight has an ok weed burner with push button igniter for $30. Ya don't actually need to burn the weeds, a one second blast from a 2000 degree torch boils the water and ruptures the plant cells.

    if you are using a cheap pump sprayer, your tip might be too small which could lead to under application. I try for 1 gal per 1000 ft sq

    Maybe hit it with some brush and vine killer that contains Triclopyr.
     
  10. Roundup won't kill it. Use Diquat, Site one sells it as Tribune.
