You wanna play patti-cake with weeds or do you want to WIN THE WAR?

And if you just want the ground to look like a nuclear dumpsite (minus the bothersome radiation) then a few bags of rock salt poured & left to "melt-in" will be your cheapest way!

Celsius Herbicide, anything with a tubular will shut off with glyphosate. It might take a couple sprayings but it will kill it. I fought dollar weed for a year until I discovered it. Just for reference,

Roundup Pro should whack it but you have to stay on it until you get it all. Next choice would be Garlon 4.

1/3rd roundup, 1/3rd brush killer, 1/3rd diesel fuel.

What's the secret for nuking these things?

I'm the only one of my neighbors that fights them. I've pulled up the roots, hit with the mower, trimmer, all sorts of HD herbicide....no luck.

This is one of about a dozen areas they're back. I just mowed them level to the ground weekend before last.

Glyphosate and a good surfactant. RoundUp has a surfactant in it and the maker Monsato is the one that invented Glyphosate.

No leave them. They smell great when trimming the fence and this pretty orange balls with red seeds.

we used to have fights throwing them at each other and I still cant stand the smell of those things.

Use a product called Crossbow. If Crossbow can kill blackberry vines, it can kill anything

Crossbow is basically the same as Garlon or Ortho Weed B gone Triclopyr, with a shot of 2-4-D in it.

All of the aforementioned products will kill the plant, however a residual such as imazapyr May be necessary to suppress regrowth. Glyphosate, tryclopyr, 24d, diquat can all be effective but you must hit the newly emerging vegetation as soon as you can.
For goodness sake don’t let it seedout.

Roundup® Concentrate Poison Ivy Plus Tough Brush Killer


Regular roundup won't work.
This will kill it.

glyphosate (roundup) would be my preference. Make sure it DOES NOT contain diquat, or claim to be “fast acting”. May take a few applications. Try to hit any new growth as soon as it has leaves.

that is merely diquat and a couple of very common broadleaf herbicides

whenever you are shopping for herbicides the active ingredients are what you look at , don’t worry at all about the brand or name.

what you want is the combination of 2,4D, dicamba, Mcpp.
it is off patent so everyone makes it. It is the most effective broadleaf week killer you can get.

you will have to respect a few times, then do touch ups.

I used the Ivy roundup but did not cut or pull a single stem until I saw it was all dead. First spray 70% looked dead. waited a week and did a second spray on anything still green. after another week hit the few remaining areas. I then pulled whatever would come up. Only place that has proved difficult but only a small area is an area where it is mostly shade. Areas with good sun died pretty quick. An area under a boxwood has been resilient and I need to hit it again this year.
