Identifying vine

Asked June 7, 2018, 8:33 AM EDT

We have a 5-leaved vine on our fence which we think may be causing a poison-ivy type rash ... what is it ... and how is it best eliminated, Roundup, etc.??

Ottawa County Michigan poisonous plants

The vine is Virginia Creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia, and some people are sensitive to this plant. Control of Virginia creeper can be achieved with. glyphosate or triclopyr. Check out the following links:
