    What could I safely use to kill poison ivy along a river bank? Its not in the water but near it. What is the best way and legal way? Round up doesn't totally kill poison ivy, its listed as partial kill on the label so that out.

    So was the secret knowledge of the PM good for something we all could use? or was it snake oil and we'd be better off with a poison ivy RU??
    Are you removing the dead vines and leaves to eliminate ALL the poisonous oils now, or will this area remain contaminated for years??? :)

    Smallaxe,



    I'm not removing anything.;) The client just wants it killed and he will take care of removing the dead ivy.

    I recently tried this formula on brushy areas and the results seem to be good. Can't give you long term effects but I have a feeling this would work on poison ivy. Not too long ago I looked at a label for off the shelf PI killer and the AI's were Gly & Triclopyr.

    Your license allows you to spray "on a river bank"? Must be different around these parts.
