Vine ID help need

Can someone please tell me what this vine is. If you pull it your hands get sticky and will put on balls/fruit but I have never seen any flowers. It has started growing in tons of shrubs all over town and if you cut it or try and pull it then it is back in a couple of days and grows like crazy. I know there is proably not a selective herbicide that can be sprayed with it on the shrubs but if there is please let me know. I tried some Gly on a brush and did not touch it, I would have tried some broadleaf weed kiler but all I had was Celcius. In the fall I might try some Speedzone at full strengh with a brush because I will neeed some for lawns anyway.
Thanks in advance
Bill

I am compelled to say one of the many varieties of morning glory..
Very invasive, beautiful and a pain in the rear.
It comes in from bird poop and other contaminated soils.
I am not at understanding what controls it either. Hand pulling is all we do.
