The Scotts Company sells the popular line of pesticides Ortho Home Defense MAX as well as Roundup. They produce everything from bug killers to rodent control products to Scotts Miracle Grow.
Roundup is a popular herbicide that is used to kill weeds. It is effective because it travels from the above ground portion of the plant into the roots and then kills the roots. The active ingredient is Glyphosate, which is also present in similar products. You need to be very careful in using this product because of all the injuries that have resulted. The Bugman recently talked about this chemical’s problems.
