De> I have a solution which, believe it or not, I used on my neighbors.

De> I sprayed the Suckers (literally) with ROUNDUP, stumps, too.
De> So, Carolyn, and others so inclined, go out in the dead of night and

I have no wish to get involved with the moral issues in this
message, but a point is worth making about Roundup, especially
as far as Bamboo is concerned.
Roundup only works on foliage. So, do all in your power to
bring the errant plants into leaf. Water them, even fertilise
them, and then, when the damned things produce a forest of
leaves, THAT is the time to go to work with the Roundup.
There is a sense in which it is not even necessary to invade
the neighbour's property. Roundup is a SYSTEMIC poison. So if
one of these plants producing runners appears on your side of
the fence, encourage it to produce leaves, then douse it in
Roundup and watch the results. Chances are that even the bits
on the other side of the fence will die off. Those who so
wished could even express surprise that this had occurred when
they had only treated the bits on their own plot!!!!!!!!

Back to the birdseed now - you can see I've had some already!

Much better than Roundup!
