Anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of honeysuckles that have taken over some yellow belle bushes appox. 4 feet tall. Any spray that might work on them and not kill the bushes.

Whew, this is a toughie! Good old fashioned vine pulling and cutting?...........Only thing I can think of. Is there anyway you can cover the bushes COMPLETELY, then spray Honeysuckle with round up? Speaking of Yellow Bells, are they perrenail shrubs? I planted one in my backyard last summer, it died down in the fall and never came back.

No, they should come back year after year. I tried the cutting and pulling, they just seem to bounce right back.

cut em back, then hand apply roundup to the new shoots when they appear. Good luck

I cut off at the ground and apply full strength roundup with a small foam brush. Works on poison ivy too.

Find the lowest point where there is some folige on the honeysuckle and spray it good, cut the rest out . This should get it.
