The first step in dealing with poison ivy is to identify that it is indeed poison ivy. If someone has touched a plant and had a reaction, or if you have seen a plant that you suspect is poison ivy, take some photos and e-mail them to us and we will try to confirm over e-mail at no charge to you. If we are unable to diagnose with a photo then we will need to come out and an inspection fee will be applied.
Poison ivy looks like a stem with a larger leaf at the end, and two slightly smaller leaves that shoot out to the sides. The leaves are generally smooth with pointed tips and the plant varies in color throughout the year: Reddish in the spring, Green in the summer, Yellow/Orange in the fall. Signs that it could be poison ivy include swelling, redness, itching, and sometimes painful blisters. The rash can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days to fully develop.
The most effective way to get rid of poison ivy plants is to use a poison ivy spray. Do not pull as it can break plant tissues and release oils that can cause potentially severe physical injury.
Poison Ivy Spray is a pesticide application that is done by our licensed technician that is exempt from provincial bylaws. Our technician will spray the foliage and the product is absorbed through the leaves and taken down into the plant to the root system. This spray will kill the existing plant from the leaves right down to the root and you will see browning/crisping of the plant over the span of approximately 15-30 days
People should not mess with Poison Ivy, Our control works and gets down to the root. Use a professional. Home remedies such as vinegar rarely work effectively and take way longer.
