This may be hard to explain, but here goes: I had alot of poison ivy also. This is what I do. Wear latex gloves, cut main vine 6" from the ground, put a drop or 2 of RoundUp(straight from jug) on the stem. Be very careful removing the rest of the vine. Sometimes I leave the vine there for several days, it will die. The stem with roundup on it will take the poison to the roots & all will die. When I sprayed the vine it only died for a while. Putting roundup directly on the vine seems to do the trick. I always put the dead vine in a plastic bag, tied it & trashed it. Just be very careful. Good luck, Happy Gardening, StanetteTN6
