Re: [NAFEX] Poison ivy


There are people who have no reaction to poison ivy.  They can pull it
with their bare hands.

I use to control it on the ground with a bleach spray.  I had a well and
did not want to contaminate it with herbicide.

My suggestion...  Find an immune person and have them pull it.  Then keep
new plants at bay with a bleach solution spray.  It will die out pretty
