I'm very worried about round up gel. If, as it says in the adverts, just a dab on a leaf kills the weed, and, as not mentioned in the advert but written on the bottle, it should be kept away from pets and children, how safe is it really to use in our gardens? A caterpillar, a natural food source for nesting birds, would presumably be infected and consequently the bird and its offspring could be poisoned not to mention wild rabbits etc. I realise weedkiller in general has the same effect but somehow this sounds more potent. Shouldn't we all be using something more wildlife friendly!
