I bought some Crossbow weed killer yesterday.
At 22 bucks for 16 ounces not cheap.
I mixed it at a strong ratio as shown in the instructions and mostly put it on the parking lot driveway.
So far it is working very well.
Well see how long it lasts.

Some one put a title on this, I forgot to.

I used the Crossbow to kill the Virginia Creeper. It works pretty well. Rather than spread it all over, I used a tiny amount when I killed the Virginia Creeper. Thumbs up

What kind of title is Crossbow Weed Killer?

I wanted to call it ---- Weed Killer from Hades that will Suck the Skin from Your Bones! Blinking

Keep us updated on this weed killer. I sell this at work and I have Virginia creeper and bindweed everywhere. I would like to dab something on both to get rid of them since my Roundup is useless on pretty much everything around here. Rolling my eyes.

I hate to use the really powerful stuff, but Crossbow is the only thing I found that will kill trumpet vine.

It did a pretty good one shot job where I put it in a strong solutions.
Oddly one area of chickweed seem unaffected while some not far from it was brown.
I did a second pass yesterday where I thougt it need be and put down some nutgrass killer also.

I think half my yard is now nut grass. I used nut grass killer last year and it laughed at me. Glare

It can be a tough to get rid off.
In my main lawn where it started, after four years it seems to be gone but in sod I laid, that came with it installed, it is taking longer.
It is getting less but every other years I have to give it another lessor shot, although reading some of the online info , even the companies that sell it say if it is heavy it will take multiple applications.

Last year I saw it in one spot. This year everywhere. Our yard runs down to a creek and I try to limit my chemicals here but I may have to start spot spraying.

I'm ready to do almost anything to kill the invasive vines and poison ivy coming into the yard from 3 neighbors. Weed-whacking them and scraping along under ground level with a spade doesn't work.
