Wondering what any of you have done to get rid of Oriental Bittersweet vines for good?
I have cut and removed dump truck loads of the stuff on customers properties over the years. This town is riddled with it.
You can cut it to the ground but it just keeps coming back. I would like to kill it down to the roots.

My question is regarding my parents property, not a customers. Last week I noticed several areas that had bittersweet creeping up.

I'm thinking using a spray bottle with brush killer or equivalent and just spray the leaves of it. Keeping it localized to the bittersweet.
I'm guessing several applications might be needed?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Googled it and found this:
What will kill oriental bittersweet?


The most effective control of oriental bittersweet is achieved using an herbicide containing triclopyr in an 8 percent solution diluted at a rate of 4 fluid ounces to 1 gallon of water sprayed on its foliage.
