Killing Poison Ivy


Anonymous added on May 24, 2014 | Answered

I have poison ivy growing up the side of my house right beside the outdoor spigot. Will bleach kill it? Is there anything that I might have in my home that will kill it so that we can pull it up?

If you're looking to get rid of poison ivy (or oak), treat with herbicide first (to kill the roots) then, wearing gloves, hand pull dead plant material and dispose of it. Do not burn it, however, as the poison can be breathed in and will result in a nasty rash.
