Your best option to remove pokeweed without using Roundup would be to manually dig out the plants. Be sure to get all of the fleshy taproot. If any of the taproot is left in the ground, they will re-sprout. Try to get them out before the berries ripen and drop. Birds eat the fruits of pokeweed and spread the seeds.
