Important Outdoor Maintenance Question

Is it safe to use the applicator from Ortho’s Weed-Be-Gone to apply Round Up Weed killer from a refill bottle?

Would this mixture create a nightmare scene out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie creating mutated dandelions that would arise and take their revenge on humanity?

Or, would adding Round Up to Weed Be Gone create an airborne mist that would serve to round up and get rid of my neighbor’s rather stinky-when-used “medical” weed supply and cause it to be gone? This would be a win for the neighborhood.

Asking for a friend . . .

Rinse well.

Then do it again.

Then one more time.

That oughta do it. Lots of water is better. Dilution is the Solution and all that.

Or spend $20 and buy a decent garden sprayer. Label it RoundUp (in big fat sharpie marker on all sides), and use it exclusively for that purpose.

Hey Aaron;

"B" is correct. Also for your neighbor's weed problem, fill a couple of balloons with weed killer and launch them at his "stash". The resulting splat will be enertaining....For your friend

Weed-B-Gon is good, old 2-4-D, while RoundUp is an organophosphate. Mixing them should cause no problems, even if you don't rinse the bottle.
