Would Ferti-lome Brush Killer and Stump Killer work on Japanese Knotwood?

I originally thought it was bamboo. After sending photos to several bamboo removal companies, only1 responded. It's not bamboo but Japanese Knotweed and they don't do that. It is spreading like crazy and I need it removed or destroyed before it destroys my foundation. HELP!!


Ferti-lome Brush Killer and Stump Killer is not labeled for Japanese Knotwood. We recommend that you use a combination of products together to try to control this weed. Using Roundup QuickPro in a tank mix with Crossbow herbicide has shown pretty good results for several of our customers. Japanese Knotweed is definitely a very hardy weed and is tough to control, even with the best products, but this combo should help.
