The easiest way is to cut the ivy at the ground (the bigger the stems the better) then on the exposed ends spray the highest concentration of 2,4 D directly on the freshly cut area. Do it again in a day or 2 and it will kill the plant.

I just put the undiluted chemical in a spray bottle and do it by hand. We had a stem that was almost 4 inches around and drilled a small hole .5 with a drill and filled it up with the 2, 4 D (not even .25 of an oz) and it never showed any signs of life again..
