    I just thought you would want to see the poison ivy at my daughter's house on the back fence. Poison ivy was mature--wrong time of year to spray it. I sprayed it with T-Zone. Used an ounce or two of solution. Nothing happened after two days...and then... This picture was taken August 16, about 7 days after spraying.

    I should point out that the solution was about 4 months old. Originally prepared April 20, 2011.

    I wish I'd taken pictures of my gly./AS mixture I sprayed on some poison ivy a few weeks ago. Same results.

    I've got another spot to spray this week. I'll take some photos.

    I've been dealing with more PI this season than I ever have in the last 6 years of business.

    I've been using a mix if Surge and RU to control one back yard that was completely infested. If I hadn't gotten control as of just recently, then I was going to switch to an RU mix along with an ester formulation.

    It's taken me all season to get a complete kill only because everytime more English IVY and Vinca was killed off, more PI sprouted out where the runners were suppressed by the ground cover.
