Ranger Pro with 41% Glyphosate (same active ingredient as Roundup) is a complete broad spectrum post-emergent professional herbicide. Ranger Pro is the generic of Roundup Pro, and is equivalent and just as effective as the name brand, only much less expensive. This generic roundup will kill most weeds and grasses. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid with surfactant, therefore no additional surfactant is needed. Ranger Pro moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. It is then absorbed into the soil and breaks down naturally, and therefore will not spread through the ground and kill neighboring plants.
|Active Ingredient:||41% Glyphosate (same active ingredient as Roundup)|
|Yield:||Please see the product label for mixture and yield information.|
|Manufactured By:||Monsanto Company|

In fact, Ranger Pro is made by Monsanto, the same company that makes Roundup, so you'll get the same professional-grade weed killer, for less. Ranger Pro will kill many annual weeds, perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid with surfactant, therefore no additional surfactant is needed.

First of all, ordering this product was VERY easy and speedy. We used one and a half gallons for about an acre and a quarter. It worked beyond expectation. We checked after a week and the grass and weeds were all brown and dead. Our ratio was a quart to 24 gallons. We used a sprayer mounted on a 4-wheeler. We are extremely pleased.

Basically a "generic" Round Up
By John on March 31, 2011
Shipping and packaging were without any problems. Entire transaction was very professional. The product is a very affordable version of Round Up. Round Up Pro is a 48.7% concentration where as Ranger Pro is 41%. The price advantage of Ranger Pro is 2.5 gallons for less than one gallon of Round Up Pro. The 41% is more than adequate for killing off virtually everything.

Within 2 weeks all that we sprayed was dead. Thanks for saving us a lot of money. People wanted $800.00 to do the same thing Ranger Pro did for us. We saved $700. Thanks!

Ranger Pro Herbicide-2.5 gallon
By Derrell on October 3, 2012
I used this product to spray my fence lines over a week ago . The grass is still growing and green .
By Josh on October 2, 2012
This stuff worked great. It took about 9 days to completely kill some of the desert grass I had so be patient. I live in AZ and the weeds are a pain. My uncle who is a landscaper told me about this stuff. I will continue to use it. I used a 4 gallon back pack sprayer.
Ranger Pro Herbicide
By Buster on August 3, 2012
Great value. I used a pint of rubbing alcohol per 2 gals of mix as a surfactant and I got 100% coverage on poison ivy leaf with little run off. Be patient. It takes a week for it to kill poison ivy but after that week you'll know it works.
Great substitute for Roundup!
By Emile on August 1, 2012
Initially I was going to buy Roundup, my usual weed killer. My yard is small, only about a fourth of an acre. So I debated for a while on whether I would go with my favorite brand or with Ranger Pro, which I had not heard of prior. When I had read the reviews, I decided to give it a try. Sure enough, it exceeded my expectations. With the recommended dilution of 2 oz/gallon of water, I sprayed all the weeds growing in our yard. Some literally dried up in two days. The more sturdy and taller weeds, in two week's time. I am really happy with this product and highly recommend it in lieu of the much more expensive Roundup.

Ranger Pro Herbicide - 2.5
By W.n. on June 18, 2012
I'm still finishing up the last bit of Round Up, so I haven't opened the new Ranger Pro Herbicide. I do want to rate DoMyOwnPestControl for their quick response. I received my shipment of Ranger Pro Herbicide as promised: Shipping free and fast! I couldn't have been more pleased. I wouldn't hesitate to go to this company again for service. My neighbor uses Ranger Pro Herbicide and showed me the results he received. That convinced me of its positive performance.

QDoes Ranger Pro Herbicide kill kudzu?

February 1, 2010 Dave asked:
QHow long before a rain is Ranger Pro safe to apply?
AThe product label for Ranger Pro Herbicide does not specify a certain amount of time but it does say that heavy rain soon after application may require a repeat application. The word soon is open for debate, but we would recommend only applying the product when you have a good 3-4 days of no rain in the forecast. 3-4 days of the product being dry should be enough for it to do the job.
March 11, 2011 George asked:
QDoes Ranger Pro kill Japanese Knot Weed?
AYes. Ranger Pro is non selective post emergent herbicide and it will kill just about any type of vegetation that it is sprayed on.

Dennis from Mattawan, Mi asked:
QWhat ratio per gallon of Ranger Pro should the average homeowner mix to control normal weed growth?
I've been using roundup concentrate in the past, at @ 3 oz. per gallon in my sprayer. I've just tried out Ranger Pro at @ the same ratio, but it doesn't appear to work the same. By all accounts, this is the same product under a different name. Should I be expecting the same results?
ARanger Pro is comparable to Round Up but each manufacturer does have their own recommended usage rates. Ranger Pro moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. Visible effects are a gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant, which advances to complete browning of above ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts. Effects are visible on most annual weeds within 2 to 4 days, but on most perennial weeds, effects may not be visible for 7 days or more. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow activity of this product and delay development of visual symptoms. The amount of Ranger Pro Herbicide you will use per gallon of water will vary from 2/3 fl oz - 13 fl oz per gallon of water depending on what type of plant you are trying to eliminate. Please refer to the Ranger Pro product label for exact usage instructions.
August 3, 2011 Deb asked:
QWhat would you recommend for killing a weed called "creeping charlie"?
AWhen treating for creeping charlie it is best to usually spot treat the growth with a glyphosate or round up type product. This is the best option. This would be if it is growing in ornamental areas or places where you can treat it individually. If that is not an option and it is growing into your grass, you can use Speedzone herbicide which is labeled for selectively killing weeds in turf grass.

John from Tulsa, Ok asked:
QWhat happens if too much Ranger Pro is applied?
I applied the product, waited 4-5 days, and did not see results. So I reapplied the Ranger Pro. Turns out the first time I applied it was too cool and cloudy, so the product wasn't very effective. And the second time I applied it was very warm and sunny, at which point it worked well! But, I'm afraid I have applied too much? What will happen?
ARanger Pro pretty much only stays active while it is wet. Once dried the active ingredient has already done its job and will start to degrade. You shouldn't see negative results at this point.

Terri from Phx, Az asked:
QAfter killing the weeds with Ranger Pro Herbicide, can something be planted there and survive?
Also can you spray around established or new plants to kill the weeds around them w/o killing the plants or shrubs?
AYou can replant after 14 days in areas that have been treated with Ranger Pro. Any plant that is directly contacted with Ranger Pro will be killed. If you are spraying near desirable plants you should make sure you are not doing so on a windy day and you should block the desirable plant with a piece of cardboard or other shield.

Ci from North, Fl asked:
QCan I use Ranger Pro to kill weeds in Asiatic Jasmine?
AProducts containing glyphosate like Ranger Pro would likely kill the weeds and the asiatic jasmine because it is non-selective. Snaposhot 2.5 TG would be a good choice for a broad spectrum pre-emergent around Asiatic Jasmine. Fusilade II should be used if you need a broad spectrum post-emergent selective herbicide.

Danny from Lawrenceville asked:
QIs Ranger Pro Herbicide good on dormant bermuda in the Atlanta, Georgia area?
I have few weed everywhere in yard. Can i apply this product in yard with end hose sprayer on dormant bermuda grass. Its is still 50 degrees temp and grass has no sign of green.
AYou can apply for weed control if the grass is dormant but we just had some of the major manufacturers of glyphosate products come in and they have indicated that Bermuda grasses in GA, if you look all the way down near the root, have already started to green up and may be damaged by broadcast sprays of glyphosate products like Ranger. You may want to only spot treat the weeds if this is indeed the case.

Doyal from Alma Arkansas asked:
QCan I use Ranger Pro in my lawn without damage to my Bermuda grass?
I have some type of weed taking over my lawn. Frost doesn't kill it off. Should I spray now or wait till warmer weather. I live in alma Arkansas. Thanks.
ARanger will kill just about any type of plant it is sprayed on though it will not likely kill plants that are dormant including the weed. You will need to wait until the weed is actively growing to kill it with Ranger. You should avoid spraying desirable plants.

Wayne from Whittier, California asked:
QWill Ranger Pro be harmful to pets?
ANo, if you follow the product label and keep pets out of the area during the application and until the area is dry, Ranger Pro Herbicicde will not be harmful to pets.

Shelby from Ok asked:
QWill Ranger Pro kill fescue?
I have 30 acres covered on fescue. Now that Bermuda is dormant can I proceed with killing fescue. At what mixing do I mix to get enough concentrate to go after fescue
ARanger Pro will kill just about any grass that is actively growing including fescue.

Ben from Boscobel Wi. 53805 asked:
Qhow much area will 2.5 gal of ranger pro kill vegation?
what is the mixing rate?
AThe usage rate will vary greatly depending on what and where you are treating. You can use a 2/3 of an oz per gallon rate - undiluted for harder jobs. Please read over the Ranger Pro product label to see what usage rate you will require for your needs to see how far the product will go for you. In general one 2.5 gallon can treat several acres at the 2/3 of an oz usage rate.

QNeed quick kill for Crabgrass in St.Agustine?
Please recommend a product.
A Unfortunately their is not a selective product that will remove crabgrass from St. Augustine. St. Augustine is a very fragile grass, and so most selective products that are labeled to remove crabgrass and not your real grass, will hurt the St. Augustine. It is recommended to kill the crabgrass with a round up type product, like Ranger Pro, which will also kill just the St. Augustine around the crabgrass that it is sprayed on, and then a couple weeks later re-seed those areas with new St. Augustine. Ranger Pro: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/ranger-pro-herbicide-25-gallons-p-1124.html For long term control though, you should apply a pre-emergent in the late fall and early spring which will prevent new crabgrass from coming up next year. If you apply pre-emergent every year, you should not have issues with crabgrass long term. Barricade is one of our most popular pre-emergents for crabgrass.

QIs Rangerpro toxic to birds, butterflies, bees, or fish?
ARanger Pro should not harm insects or birds unless they are sprayed with the product or contact areas before they have dried. Ranger can be harmful to fish if it is applied to bodies of water which is against the product label instructions. Ranger Pro is labeled for use in wildlife areas and in wildlife food plots.
