Poison Ivy & Poison Oak Control

15 years ago

Use of chemicals is something that I totally try to avoid, but in the case of poison oak/poison ivy, there seem to be few alternatives. We own almost eight acres of heavily forested, East Texas land and a very healthy population of both species. Use of glysophates (Roundup Xtreme)seem to be the best option of control, but when treating individual leaf clusters, it's difficult to determine (after a few minutes) which have been treated, and which have not. Has anyone had any sucessful experience in introducing a coloring (or dye) to the spray container, that might make treated leaves more distinguishable ??
