Roundup Spray Effective

The areas that were sprayed with herbicide last Monday and Tuesday are dieing off nicely.  That does not sound right, but it is what we want.  Spot spraying will be occurring next week in select locations.

Compare the photo below to the photo from one week ago . What a difference in just 5 days!!
