About This Product

The power is in your hands to keep your landscape in line - unleash it with Spectracide lawn and garden products. Our easy-to-use, fast-acting insect, lawn disease and weed control solutions help you tame lawn and landscape invaders with incredible pest-punishing power. Take command with Spectracide brand. You hold the power.Spectracide Stump Remover Granules accelerates natural stump decomposition without harming the surrounding vegetation. The easy-to-pour granules leave no odor and require no mixing. These granules speed the decomposition of the stump, making it porous. Once the stump has become porous, it may be easily removed or burned. Decomposition, depending on the size of the stump, may take several weeks or months. Prior to using Spectracide Stump Remover Granules, freshly cut stumps should be killed with a brush killer.This product works best when weather is warm and stumps are dry. To remove stumps, drill several 1-inch holes up to 12 inches deep into stump. Then into the side of the stump, approximately 3 to 4 inches from the top, drill a 1-inch hole slanting down to connect with the bottom of the center hole. Pour approximately 4 ounces of Spectracide Stump Remover Granules into each hole. Then fill with hot water to dissolve the granules. See label for complete directions.

            The hardest part was drilling multiple holes in the cypress stumps. I then filled 6" deep (7/8" Diameter holes) with this product. Added hot water. I will do a second application this week. In late fall I will cover stumps in charcoal briquettes and light. These stumps are only about 3" above ground level and hopefully I'll be able to burn them below ground level. I have a lot of unused top soil I'll spread around the stumps to keep any fire from spreading and a garden hose ready!

            Bottle is designed to ease the application of the product as directed. You must drill holes in the stumps for proper application. I applied this to two stumps @ 2-months ago and will re-apply it this weekend. So far, no dramatic visible effects on either of the stumps. Hopefully the re-application will move the process along a bit faster. So far I'm not overwhelmed with the effectiveness.

            Stump must be DEAD
            I’m returning the product. My error. I thought this stuff killed the stump. It does not. The stump must be dead before using the Spectracide stump killer. So I’ll Rtn this & find a product that kills the stump.

              It was easy to apply. I just applied it a couple of weeks ago. Can't see any results yet.
