Poison Ivy Control

We apply a product designed for Poison Ivy (Roundup) at an application rate that will effectively kill it. Poison Ivy is a sub terrarium creeping vine which makes it very difficult to exterminate in one application, especially in older, established areas. 2-4 treatments may be required over a time period of 2 years. Our Poison Ivy control service starts at $250. Contact us to learn more about our Poison Ivy Treatment.

How to Identify Poison Ivy

The following four characteristics are sufficient to identify poison ivy in most situations:

  • Clusters of three leaflets
  • Alternate leaf arrangement (leaf attachments are singular at nodes, and leaves alternate direction, to a greater or lesser degree, along the stem.)
  • Lack of thorns
  • Each group of three leaflets grows on its own stem, which connects to the main vine

Possible Health Concerns

  • Urushiol-induced contact dermatitis is the allergic reaction caused by poison ivy
  • In extreme cases, a reaction can progress to anaphylaxis
  • Urushiol binds to the skin on contact, where it causes severe itching that develops into reddish inflammation or non-coloured bumps, and then blistering

About Poison Ivy

  • Poison Ivy grows throughout much of North America, including the Maritime Provinces, Quebec, Ontario, and Manitoba
  • It is normally found in wooded areas, especially along edge areas where the tree line breaks and allows sunshine to filter through
  • It also grows in exposed rocky areas, open fields and disturbed areas
