    4 of 5 Stars   More useful than Roundup
    June 13, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    My wife and I own 55 acres of mostly overgrown pasture in south-central Pennsylvania. It wasn't pastured for about 30 years and was taken over by multi-flora rose, honeysuckle shrub, autumn olive, grape, poison ivy, etc. We use a variety of control methods including herbicides (mostly on roadsides and fence rows). The problem with Roundup is that it kills the turf, making an opening for more weeds. One small disappointment is that Crossbow kills rather slowly, but we will probably have little use in the future for Roundup.

    5 of 5 Stars   Works great on Poison Oak
    March 17, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I have 18 acres of land in Northern California, which is heavily infested with Poison Oak. Crossbow works very well for controlling the Poison Oak. It can take several weeks to see the results after spraying, and re-spraying may be necessary in heavy growth areas. I did three passes in a 2-acre area, with about 4 weeks between each one - each time there was much less Poison Oak to spray, but this meant I got all of the little shoots. One year on from my first spraying, there is very little return growth.

    5 of 5 Stars   Love it for poison ivy!
    July 20, 2013

    I found crossbow after talking with a greens keeper at the local golf course. Cross bow is great at killing all woody brush. I love that I can spray it right thru the grass and all it will kill is the poison and sumac sprouts. It will KILL TREES if you get it on the bark, leaves or root areas so be careful if you are spraying around them. much more potent than regular brush killer and a little goes a long way. economical in the long run.

    5 of 5 Stars   Death to Wisteria!
    August 30, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this to eradicate a chinese Wisteria that has spread to over 1/4 acre and is pulling down trees by climbing and strangling. Not on my property but guess where the trees fall? Yeah, on my garage and driveway. With permission of the landowner I attacked the thing about 2 weeks ago and it is definitely dying. I know that I will have to hit it again in the Spring, and again, and again, but hopefully the gallon will be enough. It's doing what it's supposed to be doing. Shipment was fast!

    5 of 5 Stars   Crossbow on Live Oak sprouts
    September 10, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I have been using Crossbow on various plants. It really kills blackberries and gooseberries. I mainly have been using it to kill sprouts on Live Oak stumps that were masticated a year ago. It takes a week or so to see results but it eventually works.

    5 of 5 Stars   Works Great
    May 8, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    I have used Crossbow Herbicide 2x's on the Ivy bed in my front yard. The first time I sprayed I noticed the bright green leaves turning a little yellow after about 3 days. I waited a couple of weeks and sprayed again and the Ivy is now showing to be about 75% dead. I will spray again in another week or so to finish it off. I have also over-sprayed into the yard area and it doesn't kill the grass. Great product

    5 of 5 Stars   Excellent product
    September 24, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I have used both on woody areas and broad leaf weed control with great results. Not for use near turf grass when over 85 degrees as stated on the label as I discovered with minimal drift during woody area control. Very strong smelling product.

  • 2 of 5 Stars   Killed established bermuda grass.
    September 27, 2014

    I don't know the exact kind of Bermuda grass that I have but it killed it along with the weeds. Q&A's on this product said it wasn't suppose to kill the Bermuda grass.
