Vine Removal

Anonymous added on September 9, 2011 | Answered

We have vines growing up and in my house. They are the ones with the leaves that are a triangular shape. Is there an organic way to get rid of them? We are trying by hand to remove them away from the house and off the house. Is there an easier way to do it other than a fire?

There are organic ways to kill the vine, but it sounds like you have ivy and these, even after they are dead, must be manually pulled off the building because of the type of roots they have. To kill the vine, you can try spraying it with bleach or pouring boiling water on it. Be advised that these methods will kill whatever the plant it comes in contact with.
