The Q&A Archives: Poison Ivy removal

Question: Please advise as to the best way to remove poison ivy.

Is bleach effective?

Answer: Bleach won't kill poison ivy. An herbicide containing glyphosate formulated for brush and applied (and possibly reapplied) according to the label instructions should do the job. A late summer, early fall application (while the roots are rebuilding reserves) can be more effective than a spring application. Be sure to read and follow label directions.
