With so many environmental and health-related concerns with Monsanto’s Roundup, it is no wonder that more people are seeking safer alternatives to glyphosate. If you’ve got kids and pets around, you are even more likely to resist spraying harsh chemicals that risk someone getting hurt. That’s why organic weed killers are a safer option. You can tackle pesky weeds without harsh chemicals.
Surprisingly there aren’t many organic weed killers on the market today. We did find a couple of options and, in our opinion, this Avenger Organics Weed Killer is the best. The product comes in either 1-gallon, 32-ounce or 24-ounce sizes, some of which include the spray nozzle and tube.
The solution does not need to be diluted with water, so it’s ready to go once you receive it. Be careful spraying this because it will kill grass and anything else it touches, so be precise with your aim. It is also best to use this when the sun is out to increase its effectiveness.

If you have kids or pets around, you probably don’t want to spray your yard with harmful chemicals. Your best “organic” line of defense against weeds is pulling them out manually or using mulch or ground cover to keep on top of them at the start of the spring season (this may vary or be all year round, depending on your location).
But for those hard-to-reach spots or persistent weeds, consider this pet safe weed killer.
