Can anything kill ivy?

Is there anything that can kill ivy? There's nothing around the ivy so overspray is not an issue.

Any broadleaf weed killer should work. Transplant it over to my house and it will be dead in a week.

I would pull everything out and get to the roots. Heard these things are hard to get rid of. I think just spraying it will not do the trick permanently.

i had english ivy in a large oak tree, i cut all the vines back to the ground and pulled them (vines) off the tree and sprayed it with ROUND UP once a week until it was all gone.

Round-up will do it, but it takes a while. Trim back to just a few leaves and spray with round-up. When new leaves form, spray again. It will take several applications.

DIYAddict - pulling by the roots won't work unless you get ALL the roots.

I once had a customer who used a "cocktail" of round up and brush killer.He used the package mixing instructions for both and then combined them.It worked like a champ....one application and it was gone.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I think I'll give the "cocktail" a try. Hopefully I'll have my own ivy killing happy hour.
