How do you get rid of ivy?
Digging up, growing shade-loving plants, mowing at a higher blade setting, mulching, putting down ground cover, solarizing with weighted-down black plastic sheeting and using weedkillers are ways to get rid of ivy. Application of herbicides generally is most effective when applied during the ivy growing seasons of early May to early June and in late August to mid-October. Mowing and mulching need to realize heights of 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) for respectively casting enough shade and suppressing weedy re-growth.
Dislodging, solarizing, and spraying are ways to control ivy. The perennial vine in question is shallow-rooted and therefore responds well to manual or mechanical removal as long as all fibrous root crowns and trailing stems get dislodged and disposed of. Spraying with select pre-emergent and post-e…mergent herbicides such as those with the respectively active ingredients dichlobenil and glyphosate give respectively excellent and good results. (MORE)
Best way it to pull it up roots and all. If you have axis to heavy equipment you can dig up roots then hook cable or chain to the roots and pull out large clumps at a time.

Usually you would have to go to the doctor and they will give you steroids. That's what I did the first time I got poison ivy. But the last time I got it, I put aloe vera gel on it and it went away just as quickly if not quicker. Lather it on two or three times a day, whenever you start to get very …itchy. Of course, you should try not to scratch as much as you possibly can! (MORE)
Separation of roots from stems, solarization of an area, and treatment with herbicides are ways to eliminate poison ivy. It will be important to don proper protective equipment, head to toe, when severing above-ground parts from life-sustaining liquids from the roots, spraying with appropriate Toxi…codendron radicans plant-killers (amitrol, glyphosate, triclopyr, 2,4D) or weighting down small areas with sun-absorbent materials to bake the life out of the pesty plant. . Glyphosate is a herbicide that has been proven to be effective against poison ivy. Products including Roundup and KleenUp contain this herbicide. It is sprayed directly onto the leaves of the plant and is not absorbed by the soil. The leaves absorb the herbicide and carry the agent to the rest of the plant. To avoid killing desired plant life nearby, do not use too much. After a few days, you can remove the poison ivy. Remove the plant carefully and take the same precautions that you would if the plant were still alive. Although the plant is dead, the toxic oils are still present on the leaves, and one touch is all it takes to become infected with the poison.. Amitrole . Amitrole is a herbicide contained in two pesticide products called Amitrol-T and Weedazol. This herbicide works in the same manner as the herbicides previously mentioned. But it infiltrates the soil and prevents new growth of the plant for a certain period of time. Do not use this product around food crops or animals that graze on land that is affected by the poisonous weed.. Other Herbicides . Many other herbicides can remove poison ivy. Some of these include 2,4D, triclopyr and a mixture of 2,4D and triclopyr. These herbicides are present in products such as Weed-B-Gon, Jet Weeder, Garlon, Redeem, Brush-B-Gon, and Crossbow..

If you are trying to get it out of the ground, say its growing aside your house, your best way to kill it would be to pour gasoline on it and just let it soak into the soil, but it may kill any plants next to it. There is also some poison ivy killers, but they actually aren't as effective as gasolin…e. If you are trying to get it off of your skin, there is really no way to completely just stop it. but you could try 'Ivy Dry' its a spray on liquid that you spray on the infected areas, and just leave it alone. But be aware it may burn and sting if you scratched open the boils from the poison ivy. It's also best to combine this with an anti-itch agent but if not, it works too. Hope this helped. (MORE)

Even if it is ugly you must not cover it up, it need to air out dont touch it cuz it spreads!!!! (MORE)

Very carefully! :-) First suit up wearing a hazmat suit, nitrile gloves, respirator, and protective eye shields. Selective hand removal by manually digging and pulling out the pi vines with their roots still attached is only way to go. This method is least intrusive to the forest floor ecology.
