    Is there a way to kill the poision Ivy and not the other ground cover such as English Ivy? Its a bad infestation and if I try to pull it out I will just create a worse problem.

    No. Your beat. You can save as much as possible by using a backpack or handheld sprayer and spot spraying. Round-up is only so effective. The Restricted Use products are going to work the best but you need a licence.:hammerhead:

    I think you're out of luck. All of the control products are broadleaf specific, but don't distinguish one kind from another.

    Brush round up on with a paint brush. Or, if the vines are thick, cut them and brush concentrated round up on to the stub. Will probably have to repeat this to get rid of all of it.
