tHE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF POISON IVY PLANTS IS TO PULL THE LEAVES OUT ALONG WITH THE ROOTS. IF YOU LEAVE IT IN YOUR GARDEN IT WILL JUST SPREAD BECOMING BIGGER AND MORE WIDE SPREAD. tO DO THIS YOU NEED A SUPPLY OF PLASTIC BAGS ( SUPERMARKET BAGS ARE IDEAL) YOU INVERT THE BAG,PUT IT ON YOUR HAND AND PULL THE PLANT OUT WITHOUT TOUCHING IT, THEN COVER THE PLANT WITH THE REVERSEING OF THE BAG, TIE IT, AND THROW IT OUT. WEAR GLOVES AND LONG SLEEVES AND PANTS. FOR ADDITIONAL PROTECTION. I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT IT IS BETTER TO DO THIS IN THE WINTER MONTHS , SINCE THE SAP IS NOT FLOWING SO FREELY.
