Thanks to all. I spotted it growing up between cracks in the sidewalk
today. The cracks and weeds are all going to be treated this week, but
the PI will have to be removed first. I am highly allergic so any
suggestions for removal welcome.
Generic Roundup doesn't touch them. I applied Roundup with a sponge to
individual poison ivy plants. No effect at all.
They make herbicides specifically for poison ivy. I tried them too.
Not much effect.
Pulling them works.
As I posted previously, I've never had a problem with the gloves I used.
When I take them off, I end up touching them. When I put them on later
I touch them again. I've never gotten a rash that way.
It doesn't have much effect on me , but my wife breaks out if she
even looks at it . Living out in the woods as we do , it's hard to avoid
- especially for the dog . So one of his watch words is "poison ivy !!"
If he approaches a patch that's all I have to say and he backs off .
When I do get some on me the clothes I'm wearing go straight from my
body into the washing machine with a little extra detergent . And I go
straight into the shower .
Lots of weeds either have naturally or have developed immunity to
Glyphosate. Monsanto just isolated that gene and put it in their corn.
There are still a few pervasive weeds that Glyphosate kills and I will
use it on them (mostly Cogon Grass) but there are plenty of weeds that
just laugh at it.

I guess now Roundup just kills people, if you believe the ambulance chasing

I would spray it with something like Bayer Advanced which would not hurt
Clipped from Googling:
"2,4-D. 2,4-D is either sold alone or in mixtures with herbicides such
as MCPP, dicamba and triclopyr. 2,4-D is only marginally effective in
controlling poison ivy. Products that contain 2,4-D in combination with
dicamba and triclopyr will provide better poison ivy control than 2,4-D

It didn't look to me like it was growing in a lawn. But if it is, then
I'd just put a disposable glove on and pull it out. It's one tiny plant.
Poison ivy is harder to kill than lawn weeds and a selective herbicide just
makes it harder that one that kills everything.
I buy the lowest price name brand "brush killer" product the store is
selling and that has always done the trick for me. Don't know what the
