RoundUp Quik Pro is a non selective herbicide concentrate that’s designed to target and eliminate any unwanted weeds, grasses and other plants you spray it on and provide a temporary bare ground area.

When you’re ready to use RoundUp Quick Pro, prepare your sprayer by filling it half way with water, add the recommended amount of product per the label to the tank, and then fill the remaining tank with water to mix the solution. 

RoundUp Quick Pro comes in a variety of sizes for your needs:

The box of 5x1.5oz packs is perfect for the average homeowner's yard that just needs to spot treat here and there as weeds appear. Each 1.5oz pack mixes with 1 gallon of water.

The 6.8lb jug is great for larger areas as it will make approx 70 gallons of finished solution, still mixing it at the rate of roughly 1.2 to 1.5 oz per gallon of water. 

QuickPRO has two active ingredients: 73.3% glyphosate and 2.9% diquat. The addition of diquat, along with the surfactant, gives you even faster burndown. It controls broadleaf and grass weeds, or woody brush and trees - roots and all. Roundup Quick Pro is absorbed quickly by plants and won’t wash away in the rain, as it dries in about an hour. 

Since Roundup Quick Pro is a non-selective herbicide-meaning it will control any plant it touches-be careful to not apply it on a windy day to avoid drifting to flowers, bushes or other landscaping you don't want to harm. Unless you’re clearing a large area for replanting, be very direct when spraying to only eliminate the weeds or grasses you want to get rid of. 

Both sizes come with a surfactant already built into the product so no additives for improved performance are needed. 

And it’s that easy with the expert help from Do My Own Pest Control dot com!
