Can I use RoundUp QuickPro to kill bamboo?

I have a lot of bamboo. from under a fence and has over taken my yard. Would this Kill it? I dont CARE if i kill theirs too. it's because of them I have lost my backyard. If this were to kill it. how would I apply it? just spray the sticks and ground? or cut the shoot and spray the 10 sec? also, if it does kill it (bamboo).. would i have to till my yard or something.. or can I seed and fert. my lawn back to normal? thanks.


You can use Round Up QuickPro at the highest listed usage rate to help eliminate bamboo. You will be required to cut the bamboo down to a short stump and then apply the Round Up QuickPro. It can take several applications to achieve the desired results. You should contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff to see if you will be required to till your yard or if you can seed and fertilize only.
