TRAVISH: Hello, I need to know how to get rid of poison ivy QUICKLY!
LTAQ: Hi- I’m not able to give medical advice, unfortunately
LTAQ: I’d suggest calling your doctor for assistance
TRAVISH: i don’t think she can help!
LTAQ: I don’t know what else to suggest, I’m sorry
TRAVISH: i probably need a horticulture expert. it is all over the side of the house
LTAQ: Or that, I thought you meant you had it on yourself :o)
TRAVISH: i’m not sure if it is poison ivy or just another vine though. it MAY be an imposter
LTAQ: I think there are sprays for poison ivy
TRAVISH: if i put on gloves and very CAREFULLY pull it off, it might just come back!
LTAQ: Have you checked home depot/lowes?
TRAVISH: if i do that i MAY have to burn it so no one else touches it
LTAQ: I would go to your nearest home improvement/hardware store
LTAQ: they can probably suggest some solutions to you
TRAVISH: i’m going to put it all in a bag very carefully and just burn it in a can
TRAVISH: i think its all the way up on the roof, and i need it down because i have a cat that climbs up there
LTAQ: I honestly can’t help, I’m sorry.

LTAQ: and they can suggest a solution
