    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..

    Most people know Monsanto has done some pretty bad things, and treated people in some pretty bad ways, however, they have also created the most cost efficient herbicide that is readily available on todays current market. Was there anything about monsanto that you would like to know? I did a 20 page paper on them for a research writing class in college.
