    No, we are pretty careful about not spraying if there is any breeze (especially Roundup) I have done an estimate to repair a lawn where a guy used roundup in his lawn to kill the weeds. He thought "killex" sounded too harsh, and thought roundup would just "roundup" the weeds.:eek:

    I had a helper treating a fenceline with a backpack sprayer and roundup. He stepped in a yellow jacket nest and showered the neighbors japanese maple tree. My cost to replace-- $200. Anyway, I recommend using low pressure and a thickener adjuvant if there is any breeze to help control the drift.

    Dont have that problem. Use low pressure backpack sprayers with a foaming nozzle. No drift.
