Moss on the roof

Does anyone know of an effective way to kill moss that is growing on a portion of my shingle roof? I will cut away any tree branches that are close to prevent it from growing back but I wonder if there is a good product (Roundup? Bleach?) to kill the existing moss.

Bleach solution will kill the moss.

Zinc will prevent more moss from growing. You can buy a coil of zinc or 3 foot sections. It gets nailed near the peak so as it rains, a little zince dissolves and gets washed over your roof. This keeps the moss/algae etc from growing.
