Doris, I find that Spectracide works just like Roundup--on plants, not on the soil or in the soil--but is just so much faster.  I like it a lot because I can see within 24 hours if I've gotten it on the plant; don't have to wait 2 weeks like Roundup.  They aren't really systemics, because that would mean you could spray on the soil, the plants would suck it up and then die.  Systemics are the insecticides that are absorbed by the plants so that any chewing or sucking insects get it from the plant and die.  I've never used any of those.
