It seems to me that vinegar should be a "burn down" or "contact" 
herbicide rather than a "systemic" herbicide.  That is, it kills only 
the portion of the target that it contacts and does not kill roots.  Am 
I wrong?  If I am correct, it would not kill established weeds such as 
poison ivy or bermuda.  Except through repeated applications.  Comments 
on systemic action of vinegar solicited.
