Glyphosate is the generic name for the brand-name herbicide Roundup. The patent has expired, so there are lots of other names for the same product. It's a type of salt, but not table salt. Here's more information: Glyphosate General Fact Sheet

When Katie H. posted the homemade weed killer recipe (4 cups vinegar-1/4 cup salt-1 TBSP liquid detergent) I asked if you could replant soon afterwards. Round-Up has different wait times depending on what you are putting in that dirt. She didn't know, it appears MA doesn't have the "County Extension Service" I had back home...so I took to the internet. It seems the SALT is what gets into the soil and prevents regrowth. As in, don't put salt in a garden if you want to be sure nothing grows in that spot for a long long time. Soapy water has been used for help in the garden/lawn for ages. I remember my Mom stoppering up the utility tub the washer drained into, then carrying buckets of the soapy water out to throw on the front lawn. Up popped the grubs...and it was my job to pick them up and dump them into an old can with a bit of kerosene.

Every state has an extension service/office, although it might be associated with a city or town rather than a county In Massachusetts, it's based at UMass.-Amherst: UMass.-Amherst Research and Extension

Leave it to our resident Master Gardener to find it. I did run across that on the state website but it seemed like it might not be as helpful as I wanted. Picky broad, I know. Ultimately, I found an answer long before I'll find the energy to go out into the garden and get some work done. OTOH the snows will be coming around in a few months and hide everything.

I'm sure the cold will drive my remaining hornets out, too... but that didn't stop me from pouring 4 gal on soapy water down their hole this morning
