    Round Up is horrible for the environment and is partly responsible for the bees dying off. Please research organic means on I know that many of them use vinegar and Dawn dish Soap. I boil water and pour it on the weeds in the cracks of my walkways and driveway and that works just fine.

    If you mixed the Roundup right, no reason for it not to work unless the temp. was too low. Read directions carefully .Roundup is no more responsible for the Bees than anything else. Even Boiled water kills their food source of blooms.

    You didn't say what weeds you are trying to kill, but since Roundup didn't help, I'm assuming it's probably in the tougher ween family. I used Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus on ivy in my yard. It takes a few days to a week to see the effect, but when it does, it copetely kills it and it mine hasn't come back 3 years later. You need to read the instructions very carefully.

    sometimes you need two applications of Round up. Vinegar and hot water does not kill roots of weeds. And vinegar is too low in acid to make any difference.

    Round up needs to be sprayed on dry leaves. If the weeds were damp or if it rained or a sprinkler ran on them it would run off. It does not kill by getting to the roots.
