How can I kill poison ivy?

I have a huge magnolia tree that I have trimmed and planted all kinds of pretty plants under it, but I also have a huge spread of poison ivy growing under it. I am very allergic to poison ivy. What can I do? I have sprayed everything under the sun but it still comes back year after year. How can I kill it once and for all?

    Drown it in cleaning vinegar, preferably in blazing hot sun if possible. Do full strength. Best applied in a pump sprayer if you have one. Good luck!

    Ortho poison ivy killer works well. Unfortunately poison ivy has trailing roots, so you may have to retreat.

    It's very hard to kill. However, I suggest planting orange spotted jewelweed seed as a natural skin preventive and treatment for poison ivy and poison oak reactions. Jewelweed is in the impatiens family so it needs some shade.
