Poison Ivy monopolized my yard

Asked August 4, 2015, 11:53 PM EDT

My small, urban backyard has become so overgrown with poison ivy that I have been afraid to go near it and it is now unmanageable. How do I correct this situation?

Good Morning,
Poison Ivy can be very aggressive especially in wet warm weather like we have experienced this summer. My immediate response is to use a non-selective herbicide like Roundup. Always wear protective gear like goggles and avoid contact with the leaves. And don't forget to follow directions from the label of the herbicide. If you have questions please feel free to call me at 859-366-3155.
