Q.Poison Ivy

Zone 70445 | wltrlinks added on October 19, 2017 | Answered

I don’t want to use Round-up and such. But, I’m looking for a non-chemical solution to get rid of Poison Ivy. I cant pull it up, because there are far too many around.

There are a very limited number of methods that won't require at least some kind of chemical. Besides pulling them by hand, I would recommend pouring large amounts of boiling water on the plants and on the roots. This will kill it off.

Here is an article for more information on use of boiling water: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/watering/hot-water-on-plants.htm
