 Killing Poison Ivy

Poison ivy is doing real well this year in the Boston area. I'm looking for suggestions on how to eradicate areas in the 10'x30' to 20'x60' range where it has become ground cover under trees and scrub. Is Roudup the way to go? Practical way to spray a area like that?
Thanks

 Killing Poison Ivy

Roundup doesn't work well on blackberry vines around here but 2,4-d (crossbow brand or they sell it generically) works great. Not sure about poison ivy but I'd guess Round-up might brown it up for one season and it would come back the next. Around trees I use a hand sprayer on days when the wind is still and keep the sprayer low to the ground. Takes awhile but it's not hard work. I bought a 26 gallon sprayer with 100 feet of hose that sets on a carry-all off the tractor hitch. If you have a lot of space between trees a boom sprayer may work for you.

 Killing Poison Ivy

Round up (or a 41% glysophate generic) will kill it dead, and it should not come back (if you mix it at 6 Oz per gallon) it will work great otherwise you may need two sprayings about a month apart.
My poison ivy has not come back along my driveway in two years (about 250' by 10'). The poison ivy in my woods along the trails I decided to let be. I just keep a mental note of where it is.

 Killing Poison Ivy

On the farm we used borax---the same type used for laundry use (I think it was called "12-Team Borax Laundry Soap" It had a team of horses on it on the box front). Simply sprinkle it on the leaves. Don't need to wet it down--let it sit on the leaves and the rain will eventually soak it in.

Borax may not work since they took the phosphates out of laundry detergents but it seems like a safe and relatively inexpensive option to try. Anyone try it recently?

I have used Roundup with good results, there is also a brush rated version of Roundup that would work well on Heavy Poison ivy vines as well.

Billy, yes it was. As far a phosphates in borax, I'm not sure there were any it (I'm not a chemist). Borax is mined as a mineral.

Edit note: Borax itself alone is sufficent to kill the poison ivy. See definition below of its natural properties.

 Killing Poison Ivy

Off the web:

It was discovered over 4000 years ago. Borax is usually found deep within the ground, although it has been mined near the surface in Death Valley, California since the 1800s. Although it has numerous industrial uses, in the home borax is used as a natural laundry booster, multipurpose cleaner, fungicide, preservative, insecticide, herbicide, disinfectant, dessicant, and ingredient in making 'slime'. Borax crystals are odorless, whitish (can have various color impurities), and alkaline. Borax is not flammable and is not reactive. It can be mixed with most other cleaning agents, including chlorine bleach.
