Can Hi-Yield Root Killer be used to kill roots in a sumppump well?

My neighbor's tree is sending roots into my sump pump well. She will not cut down the tree. I've had to replace my sump pump from the roots getting tangled in the blades. I need a product to spray/pour in my sump pump well the keep out the roots.


Hi-Yield Root Killer  should only be applied in toilets or through a distribution box direct to septic tank drainfield ( NOT sink drains, tub or sump pumps. We recommend consulting with your local cooperative extension office for other alternatives.
