I have tree seedlings that spraying produces intermittent results so I experiment with other approaches that I read about and saw good results over 30 years ago. When wicking is possible, and it isn't in all instances, I can do better with a half cup of round-up what a gallon of spraying may do.

My neighbor successfully removed a large patch of it by cutting it to the ground, poisoning the stems (not sure which chemical), and religiously cutting and poisoning new shoots as the poked up for like a year. Its been about a year since he finished and no new bamboo.

Yes Sir, often diligence is key rather than expecting a magical cure.
