For Ground Covering Poison Ivy, Oak, and Sumac Trees this is the most effective stuff around. Wear protective clothing. Don't allow pets to eat any vegitation when using this. Avoid breezy days. It sets-up dried on in two hours. Whatever the spray comes in contact with is gone in just a couple days. NOT FOR "SISSY" USERS!

I used product on a patch of thick ivy and treated about five small pepper trees in my fence line. I only saw some minor wilt on the poison ivy. I went back and reapplied double strength a week later. Same results plus now the pepper trees are thinking about turning yellow. I got fed up a weekafter that. I used the rest In the bottle about 2.5 times strength. Nothing but wilt on the pepper tree I dont even see the weeds and poison ivy patch dieing. I dont know if this stuff goes bad maybe Home Depot sold me old stuff. But I wont be trying this again.... ever.

        Ortho- My nursery told me "Ortho poison ivy" will also kill thistles growing everywhere in my front yard. I was told to hook it up to the house and spray the lawn. Upon reading the directions it says it "may" kill my lawn. What do I do, these are out of control and my hoa is not happy.

          This product usually works the first time I use it on Poison Ivy, and the weed fortunately doesn't return. It also works well on killing the river bamboo which is a monster to destroy.

            The OrthoMax Poison Ivy and Tough brush concentrate works for a while but I have to apply it every month to keep the poison ivy and tough brush under control. It says it kills to the roots but they are stubborn and keep coming back. I like the product better than others I have tried.

                We have a tree that needs to be burned (was hit by a tornado) & around this tree there is a ton of thick brush that has grown up. We mixed this pretty strong compared to the directions, but it worked great!! It killed all the brush around the tree! Highly recommended, just mix a little stronger than the directions call for.

                    This product is top notch for ridding your property of poison ivy and poison oak. I had it crawling all over two utility sheds at my home and one treatment of this had it withered to nothing in less than a week. It is fairly effective against other plants as well, but for some it took two or three applications. I would look nowhere else for poison ivy and poison oak control.

                        I bough this product several months ago, mixed and sprayed it according to the directions (6 oz. to 1 1/2 gallons of water). After a month or so, the poison oak died back, but the wild blackberries just burned around the edges of the leaves or put out new, stunted leaves. It was recommended to me by my nurseryman as slower, but better than what I usually used. It is slow, that is for sure, but not as good.

                              I've used this stuff as my "heavy artillery" against two of the most tenacious invasive plants that I encounter. First, I have followed the instructions to dilute this stuff for use in a garden sprayer and went after a large patch of wild blackberry. It didn't take long to see them wilted and very sick looking. They all died that season. You have to do this, because if you try digging out wild blackberry, you cut roots which will just re-establish themselves in the soil and form new plants. Second, I used this stuff full-strength to "paint" the stumps of buckthorn plants that I had cut at near ground level. Do not allow pets near it for several days when you do this. But the painting of the stumps keeps the buckthorn from doing its "Hydra" impersonation and just growing multiple stems after cutting. Finally, I also used this for a poison ivy problem. Granted, it took me two summers of spraying the plants, but I have had no poison ivy for the last three summers. As with all chemical plant killers, be careful how you store this stuff. Use it only on dry and windless days, and keep pets away until it dries out (I give it at least two days).

                                  The label states that four ounces of the concentrate should be mixed with a gallon of water. On another page of the label it again notes this mixture ratio, and adds that the bottle of concentrate will provide four gallons of spray. The bottle contains 32 ounces, which at four ounces per gallon of water would yield 8 gallons of spray, not 4. What is the correct ratio?

                                      My backyard is English Ivy instead of grass. The trees at the back of my property have been invaded; there is also some poison ivy back there. I've sprayed for three years straight now and I'll have to spray again next spring. I see some ivy browning, so I know it's working somewhat but the only way I really get rid of any is by pulling by hand. I'll still use it because I know it helps a bit. Things could be worse.

                                          We have a problem with mulberry trees growing in rose bushes, under pine trees and other places we don't want them to be growing. I cut off the mulberry tree and paint the raw cut with a tiny amount of Ortho and it kills the tree and doesn't harm my rose bushs or other plants. We have been using this product for several years and it really works.

                                                  I bought this for an area near some pine trees and within two days the poison ivy was dying! It was very important to kill it completely because I have kids. I highly recommend it.

                                                  For Ground Covering Poison Ivy, Oak, and Sumac Trees this is the most effective stuff around. Wear protective clothing. Don't allow pets to eat any vegitation when using this. Avoid breezy days. It sets-up dried on in two hours. Whatever the spray comes in contact with is gone in just a couple days. NOT FOR "SISSY" USERS!
