    I flamed a bit ago, but stuff seems to be right back. How often do you need to do this?

    You may need to spend a little more time in each area and burn a little more intensely. Or if it is new seedlings(I guess I should say weedlings), you will just have to reburn as they germinate.

    I agree with Valent. I flame dandelions until the centers turn cherry red -- and sometimes they still come back! Seedlings and younger weeds generally take only one time, but the older and perennial ones take longer and more times.
