Hi Ginda,

I had a cottage and poison ivy was a problem.  I could not use herbacide  
as we used a well that was close to the source of poison ivy.

I just used chlorine bleach in a spray bottle on a calm day.  Killed it  
dead in a couple of applications.

Safe for the well, dissipated quickly, localized spray, killed the poison  

Using a paint brush would give even better control.  I was not that  
brave.  Sometimes if I think too hard about poison ivy I get the rash.   
Thank goodness for lye soap.
