Why did salt kill the weeds?
In Garden Weeds
Salt kills any plant by causing water to move out of their root cells instead of in. This causes cells to die, and if enough are damaged, the whole plant will too. It makes them appear 'burnt' in much the same way as too much fertilizer will.

Not directly. The active agent, THC, has some side effects on physiology and psychology, but addiction has fewer withdrawal symptoms than other illegal drugs. Still , there are lung effects analogous to cigarette smoking after chronic use, and the loss of proper judgment while "under the influence"… is similar to that of alcohol use. This can result in accidental injuries to the user and others, some of which could be severe or fatal. The illegal nature of the drug also brings the risk of incarceration, which adds additional risk of physical harm. ( Full Answer )
There are a number of ways to kills weeds. The best method and hardest to do, is to pull the weeds from the ground keeping the roots intact. This prevents the plants from continuing to grow and from spreading more seeds. Another method is to use chemical weed killer you can buy at most hardware stor…es. They come in power or liquid form, some of which is safe to use with grass, others will kill all plants.. To prevent weeds from reoccuring make sure to remove all the weeds and then place down some mulch to prevent the seeds from reaching the soil, but mainly to keep the moisture in and protect the plants you intend to keep.

Yes , weed killers can kill grass. This happenswhen the herbicide kills non-selectively on contact.
The only way I know how to kill weeds will kill the grass too.use some round up.
too much salt in the soil prevents the plant from gaining water through its roots, that said salt is NOT a good weed killer
Salt will kill any plant, including weeds. In moderation, its also a fertilizer. If you increase the salinity or salt content of the soil to a point of where its too high, the plant will use all of its water to get rid of the extra salt that it gets from the soil and will die of dehydration. The sam…e thing will happen if you or I drink sea water. I use vinegar as a weed killer. ( Full Answer )
Answer Salt is often used to kill weeds because it absorbs water. In other words, the plants die of thirst Many of the active constituents in herbicides are present in the form of isopropylamine salt, such as ROUNDUP which is best bought in the concentrate 360g/L GLYPHOSATE. a good question is what… is the other stuff, many people suggest the other stuff is worse for the environment and better for killing weeds than the glyphosate.

One scientist said that a lethal dose of THC would be reached by smoking of 15 pounds of marijuana in 15 minutes, although no one has accomplished that to test the speculation. There are no known deaths directly resulting from marijuana use alone.
Broadleaf is the type of weed whichPendimethalin controls. Specifically, the herbicide intends to control annual grasses andbroadleaf weeds which compete with field corn, cotton, peanuts,potatoes, rice, soybeans, sunflowers, and tobacco. It particularlyis effective in controlling broadleaf plantai…n, Canada thistle,horseweed, lambsquarters, and velvetleaf. It will not be at alleffective if the above-mentioned weeds are long-established intheir location. ( Full Answer )
Some gardeners prefer 1.5 cups salt to 3 cups water. Others prefer 1 cup salt to 2 cups water. Salt kills weeds, and everything else in the area. In fact, the ancient Romans routinely salted the lands of their conquered enemies. Specifically, they so heavily salted the ground around Carthag…e that the area is still desert. Such long lasting devastation won't happen with the above mixes. But the salt isn't really necessary. Boiling water, on its own, kills weeds. ( Full Answer )
Yes , vinegar can kill weeds if it is weaklydiluted in water and if the area of application is compact enough.But its effects will be non-selective and potentially fatal for anyedibles or ornamentals in the treatment zone.
I hope you don't find out the hardway, but probably yes. if they sniff it too much in the grass, its pesticides remember.
Yes bleach will kill weeds, but please do not use it to do this because it kills allot more than just the weeds, it will kill the organisms and bacteria in the soil and generally pollute the environment. There are proprietary weed killers that you can use (if you have to) that are slightly less ha…rmful to the soil (e.g. glyphosate) but it is better to remove weeds by hand digging, burning or hoeing. Another very good way is to cover the weed area with an old carpet or black plastic and leave it for 2-3 months. The black plastic/carpet prevents the light reaching the weeds ad thy die off underneath without harming the environment. ( Full Answer )
Yes , vinegar can kill weeds. Vinegar containsacetic acid, which is unfriendly to weeds and non-weeds, and willcontrol whatever grows when applied strongly as 1 part to 2 partsof water and weakly as 1 ounce (28.35 grams) diluted in a gallon(3.79 liters).
Lime is used to change the soil pH, not to kill weeds. Soil pH values range from 0-14. Many of four garden and lawn plants prefer the 6.0-6.5 range. Below is falling into the acidic range. Above is heading into the alkaline range. It takes about a ton of lime per acre to raise the pH 1/2 point. Rais…ing the pH can make it harder for plants to grow. But weeds have a much higher tolerance level for pain than plants. So they would handle any changes much better than plants. ( Full Answer )
no, round up is safer and more envirumentally friendly then salt.. -------. I found this answer and just shook my head about the ignorance. Salt is in every LIVING thing and so is safe (not to consume in great quantity mind you) for animals and people. Roundup is a pesticide and so is not safe. Co…mmon sense. ( Full Answer )
Weed can not kill you it just gets you high but if you overdose on it, it will affect you in different kind of ways
To eliminate competition with edible and ornamentalplants is the main reason for why people seek to eliminateweeds. Additionally, some people recognize no beauty or use innon-cultivated plantings.
A non-residual, specific, target pre-emergent or post-emergent herbicide is a weed killer that will not kill junipers. The herbicide must be applied away from direct run-off draining routes and without contact with injured root or stem tissues. It tends to be a more effective, less injurious control… measure to keep the area from the trunk to the drip zone free of vegetation and of weeds by setting down landscape fabric or spreading mulches. ( Full Answer )
No, marijuana or its effects have ever killed anyone or atleast no documented cases of such has been heard of.
Repotting may be the best solution. You have weeds in your houseplants, because you have weed seeds in the soil. Houseplants that are exposed to outside air may bring seeds back when they overwinter indoors. It requires great patience, keen eyesight, and meticulous attention to detail to try to rem…ove all weed roots and seeds from containers. ( Full Answer )
Yes , salt kills weeds. Specifically, it is considered an effective, natural way of controlling weeds. One advantage is that it is not a chemical pollutant. But one disadvantage is that - depending upon the concentration - it kills everything else in the area. Historically, the ancient Romans …used to salt the lands of those they conquered and wished to punish. That is what they did to the lands of their arch enemy, Carthage. In fact, they so heavily salted the lands that nothing would grow. It was the complete and immediate destruction of a way of life. ( Full Answer )
Salt water does indeed kill many land plants. There is documentation throughout history showing enemies poisoning crops by salting them. Ocean water is also known to kill land plants.. Salt water is used as a weed killer by many gardeners, however, boiling water can be used with the same effect in …many cases. ( Full Answer )
To kill weeds and not the bushs is done by using your weed killer product up to the roots of the bush. Most roots of a bush are no wider then the branches of the bush. Then you will manually need to remove the weeds around the bushs. Also very important do not get the weed product on any of the bush…'s leaves or branches. I use a weed product that is organitc and has never killed anything but my weeds. Please note that I have nothing fancy or expensive in my yard. So a little care and some manual work you will have a weed free lawn and healthy bushs. ( Full Answer )
Yes, bleach and salt treatments indeed kill weeds. But such a natural weed-killer must be applied judiciously since its application can kill everything else growing in the immediate area.
The best way to kill a weed is digging it up. Using bleach, or weed chemicals can kill the weeds, but they cause a problem. The chemicals sink into the ground, into underground lakes, kills the fishes or seeps into the ocean, causing a bigger problem, so the other best way is to pull them out, but n…ever use chemicals. They cause a problem in nature. If you insist on dumping something on it, try vinegar. It has worked wonders for me for the weeds in the concrete cracks I can't seem to pull out. Just wait until the soil is dry, then pour enough vinegar to saturate the root. Unlike salt, vinegar will dissipate in a few days. ( Full Answer )
Depends on the type of weeds and on the type opf weedkiller. Weedkiller would normally be quicker, salt water will poison the soil so is not recommended.
That the home remedy incapacitates and kills plants by drying them out is a reason why people use table salt to kill weeds in driveway cracks. The weeds in question often serve as challenges to other controls such as manual or mechanical removal and organic or synthetic herbicides. Salt tends to be …a low-cost, low-labor treatment which is environmentally friendly as long as not too much needs to be used since its presence may affect non-target vegetation in the area.

Yes. I am taking an educated guess that you are talking about Cannabis sativa and not the crabgrass growing in your yard. Cannabis is a stimulate that increases the heart rate and metabolism of an animal. Being very small, ferrets already have a pulse of 225 beats per minute and a high metabolism th…at allows for a meal to be digested in four to six hours. Increasing these natural rhythms is extremely dangerous and could very well be fatal. ( Full Answer )
It is by dehydration that salt water kills weeds. Specifically, the salt in salt water can dry out weeds. Weeds thatare dehydrated cannot develop properly. A plant that is dried outwill exhibit deformed, stunted growth before expiring.
Yes, ammonia can be used to kill weeds. But the natural herbicide in question demands attention to detail and care in all stages, from preparation to treatment to clean-up. Its consistency and odor require proper protective equipment and procedure, and its application will affect whatever else grows… in the immediate area with the targeted weeds. ( Full Answer )
Salt will kill most vegetation when applied to the soil but it will remain in the soil and kill any crops planted.
Yes, ammonia can be used to kill weeds. The weed killer in question functions as a home remedy whose application requires dilution in water and use of personal protective equipment by the applicant. It serves as a non-target herbicide whose casualties may include plants deemed weeds, and not, in the… immediate area of application. ( Full Answer )
No that is not true. There have been no studies that prove Marijuana kills brain cells.
It depends what the plant is. It is unlikely to be able to kill you but it could make you very ill
It depends on the body size (mass) of the person eating the salt.Crudley put, an adult can eat more salt than a baby beforesuffering any harm. As an example, the NaCl LD 50 dose is 3000 mg / kg body mass. This is the amount determined ofsalt per kiolgram that will kill half of the test subjects, ast…andard way of measuring toxicity. For a 45kg (100 lb) the mass is multiplied by the LD 50 dose to give the amount that will meetthe toxicity threshold. The mass of NaCl to produce this effect is136,200 mg NaCl. In more usual units this would be 136 grams ofNaCl (1/4 lb) or about 1/2 cup ( Full Answer )
Yes, salt and vinegar kills weeds. The above-mentioned home remedies operate as effective weed killers separately or together. They tend to affect nearby vegetation as well as the soil food web and its members.
It is as a dehydrant and desiccant that salt is used for weed control. Application of salt to weeds operates to dehydrate and desiccate a plant so that life-sustaining activities cannot be performed and tissues get stressed. Salt will affect other plants in the immediate treatment area even though i…t may not work on saltwater or saltwater-tolerant vegetation. ( Full Answer )
No, if it is unadulterated marijuana (which it almost certainly is) it will not kill you. White widow is a specific strain of marijuana.
Yes, Clorox and water can kill weeds. Clorox functions as a home remedy whose application is non-target since all vegetation in the immediate treatment area can be affected. Water serves not only to dilute the Clorox but also as its own home remedy in boiling forms and in combination with salt or vi…negar. ( Full Answer )
Yes , bleach water kills weeds. Specifically, the most effective control is full-concentrate bleachin a spray bottle. The spray needs to be directed to the roots. Thehigher the bleach concentration, the more likely will be theelimination of weeds within three (3) days.
Yes. Vinegar is acetic acid. Spraying a plant with vinegar will cause the foliage to burn down. It does not always kill the roots however. There are some commercial herbicides available that are acetic acid based.
Yes, salt kills lake weeds (and other plants in the immediate area). But its efficacy and practicality will depend upon such factors as whether the circulation pattern generates fast- or slow-moving water, the climate includes higher or lower humidity and temperature levels, the total dimensions inv…olve extensive depths and lengths, and the water body in question is fresh- or salt-water.

Hand-pulling, hoeing, mowing, mulching, pruning, and shading are ways to kill weeds, but not ferns. Weeds can be light-deprived and suffocated by black plastic sheeting, landscape fabrics, or non-organic and organic mulches around and under ferns. It is possible to remove individual or small groups …of weeds by garden hoes and gloved hands. ( Full Answer )
I got rid of sand spur weeds by pulling them up by the roots. Since the seeds fall off easily, the plants grow in clumps. However, I found them easy to pull up. Unlike other weeds, once they were pulled up, they did not grow back. So the answer is hard work. However, it only has to be done right onc…e unless the land gets reinfected or a seed gets left behind. ( Full Answer )
because when the plant is there then the weed will practically take all the nutrients and eat up the plant =)
Agent Orange didn't kill weeds it killed trees to flush out Viet Cong soldiers and encampments. Agent Blue is what was used to kill weeds. Thats what you want to look for for weeds.

Dehydration is the way in which a salt block killsweeds in a pond. Specifically, freshwater ponds favor freshwater weeds. Plants havenegative responses to heavy doses of salt in their fertilizer,moisture, mulch or soil. Salt lowers the moisture content withinthe growing medium -- as well as within… plants -- and therebyprevents the circulation of moisture and the intake of solublenutrients, both of which are vital to plant development andsurvival.

It is by accelerating internal growth thatsynthetic auxin kills weeds. Specifically, a plant's life-sustaining energy is prioritized amonga number of critical processes, such as flowering, leafing, rootingand shooting. A synthetic auxin occupies a plant's meristematiccells, which coordinate overa…ll plant growth rates. A plant thatgrows too fast will have leaves that are lush and stems that aretall before either plant part is capable of supporting widersurface areas. The synthetic auxins in the herbicide 2,4-D will sooverwhelm and weaken a plant that the weed will die fromlife-sustaining processes not being supported in the proper order. ( Full Answer )
