Does anybody know a way to kill Japanese hops? My neighbor refuses to clean up his yard and now that shit has found its way into my yard. It's all up the back of my garage. We cut it and pull it down but that shit grows like a foot a day.

Isn't that kudzu?  Good luck.  Mike is right.

Napalm or agent orange 

If only I could. I've tried numerous herbicides including garlon.  Nothing works.

Kudzu or Japanese hops neither one of them responds to most herbicides.  Manual removal or fire.

Could be, I was told hops by one of the county guys but they are wrong a lot.

 

This shit is horrible.  Im  actually thinking about using a roofing torch to burn it

 

 

**edit

Definitely not kudzu the foliage is way different

Ready for a plot twist... I just found out exactly what it is... Hawaiian wood rose.

That shits a hallucinogen.. Eat the seeds. (Or sell em to some burn-out kids) 

that's one of those plants that's native to India but was brought to the states and is impossible to kill. You have to cut it back regularly 

 

 

of course Diesel or gasoline would work...

Lady who used to own our house raised mugwort - probably for the thujone - at the bacK of the garden and it went crazy spreading everywhere.  Round-up stops it but you have to pull the roots to completely destroy it. May be the same with the Woodrose.

Have you tried a heavy glyphosate solution? It kills even the most evasive plants out here.

Thats Just Round-Up.

Even Quick-Pro in a 4+oz per gallon ratio will brown the leaves a bit but wont kill the roots

Before killing it with bleach I'll take some of them koa seeds, just bag em in an envelope and send em my way

Roundup is only 30%-50% glyphosate. You can make your own stronger solution which works much better. Its all about timing too. Its best to cut it back, then when its just sprouting new growth hit it hard.

No kidding?  Hence my comment about 4+ Oz per gallon of water when mixing Quick-pro (round up for professional and agricultural use) which in granular form is 74% Glyphosphate.

Would you like me to send you all the MSDS for the various herbicides? 

I do this for a living...

Any deciduous or woody vine or brush is damn near impossible to kill. Even in seedling Stage it's hard.. Once established good luck without physically tearing out the vines. Cutting back and spraying the new growth will brown the leaves and look dead, but you almost never will kill the root structure and the vine will return.

this is especially true when the offending vine is on someone else's property and you're maintaining only the vines on your land.
