Know where I can find some? Just kidding. Is there a herbicide that I can buy that will kill them? I do not have a applicators license.

Diesel and Remedy will kill it dead.

This is more expensive than spraying but is pretty convenient to use.

The above ideas work but from my experience it is a multi year job to get them knocked out if there is a bunch. Hate those things

Y'all talking about these little darlings of hell??


This whole pasture was lousy with them, don't disturb them till you herbicide the crap outta the bushes. We did that two years ago (believe it was remedy, I'll check the recipe book we keep) and still spraying them. If you do a mechanical make sure you go back when it starts to green up and spray to get most bang for your buck.

This sounds very close to the recipe we used with a little bit of Surfactant

I'm pretty sure they are. Not as big but look the same.

I bought some Remedy and round up today. Going to give them a cocktail on Saturday

This is what I was told. Takes 3 years of spraying and then you can shred them and they will be gone.

We use Grazon. It works well but definitely is a multi year job as already stated. Then once they are crispy I diesel them up and light em off

Not going to take the chance of shredding. I'll scraped them up and burn them.

Main thing is make sure the plant is dead dead before doing anything mechanical to them. If one part is still alive it'll break off and start all over.

That being said I need to get out and spray the pasture where I took the pic above, it's a uphill battle with this crap

This! If you mechanically take out the top before the roots are dead you have taken away your only means of getting poison to the roots.

So some of the rose hedges are growing again. What's y'alls thoughts? Spray them again now? Whats the best time to spray them? I'm using 2oz roundup and 2 oz of remedy per gallon of water method.

Personally, I would skip the roundup and put 4 or 5oz of remedy per gallon of water. Use surfactant or at least a dab of dish soap.

Grazon p+d requires a license. Anyone know if it works better on roses than remedy, or just protects your grass?
