I pull them out and it appears as if I have the entire root but in one week it is back with a vengence. I have used round up but no luck.

All it takes is the tiniest amount of root to be left and the weed just sprouts up all over again. The best defense is to dig the weed out, roots and all, and then spray Weed-B-Gon where the roots were. The herbicide will kill whatever remains of the roots. Wish there were an easier solution!
