what to use on poison ivy?

I have a customer that has a wooded area, in it is poison ivy. He asked what he should use on it. The only thing that i could suggest was round up. A tree service guy that was there said there was something special for poison ivy. Now the customer wants me to find out what he should use. I was wanting to know what you guys use, and if my customer can buy it himself.

GOATS! I read somewhere that goats will eat poison ivy. tell your customer to invest in 10 goats!

Seriosly though heres a site that lists some but they are mainly roundup, and broadleaf weed controls (like 2-4,d and tryclopr)http://forestry.msu.edu/extension/ExtDocs/posioniv.htm

Rpoundup will do the job-he can buy it at home depot,get a 2 gallon sprayer,add a few drops of soap or spreader sticker and spray it.Obviously he needs to read the label,so he will know what he needs to wear,and when,and how to make the application,
