  • I wish I knew what my landlords used. It's a weed killer that you mix and spray directly on the weed. Worked within a few days and killed it all!

  • I used weed stuff and it did not work. I finally poured bleach over it and that worked.

  • Round Up works pretty darn well....but be careful not to spray it on your bushes. Just spray the leaves of the poison ivy when you know it's not going to rain & slowly watch them die of a few days.

  • I'd keep spraying the plant until it's shriveled up and died.

  • TRY ROUND UP BUT KEEP IN MIND WHICH ONE YOU USE. CERTAIN ROUND UPS WILL KEEP GRASS FROM GROWING IN THE AREA FOR 2 YEARS.
