Full Answer

The ratio of Roundup weed killer in concetrate form varies due to a number of different factors:

  • Whether the product is in liquid or powder form
  • Whether the product is regular, super, or professional grade
  • How much area needs to be covered

Further, different concentrations of Roundup may be required, depending on the weed type to be treated. It is important that users of any Roundup product carefully read the directions for diluting or mixing the product before applying it to affected areas. For example, while regular Roundup Concentrate is mixed three ounces to one gallon, Roundup Pro can be used with anywhere from .8 to 7.2 ounces to one gallon.

    How long should you wait to let pets out after spraying Roundup?

    A:

    Pets should not be allowed into an area that has been treated with Roundup until the product has fully dried. According to the National Pesticide Information Center, the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer, glyphosate, is low in toxicity, but additional ingredients that help plants absorb the glyphosate may be harmful to pets if consumed while the product is still wet.
