    Q
    Can I use Bonide Stump & Vine killer in a flower bed?
    I have poison ivy everywhere and I am allergic to it. I have to completely cover up to work in my garden. Please help
    A

    Unfortunately, post-emergent herbicides that will kill the poison ivy effectively would likely also damage the flowers. It would probably be best to cut as much of the ivy as possible and then spot treat with Bonide Stump Out Stump & Vine Killer .

    Q
    Will Bonide Stump Out Stump & Vine Killer kill bamboo and horsetail?
    My neighbor planted Horsetail reeds which have aggressively started sprouting on my yard. If I clip the reed at ground level and apply this to the top, will it kill the plant? I would prefer for it to be absorbed back to the other property to kill off the plant.
    A

    Bonide Stump Out Stump and Vine Killer is not labeled for bamboo, although it is labeled for horsetail. It should work for bamboo, however, if you cut the plants down and apply the product undiluted to the freshly cut plants. You could also cut the bamboo and use something like Rodeo Herbicide.

Be sure to bag up plant cuttings so as not to cause further spreading of the seeds.

  • Asked by Michael from Sumter, Sc

    Q
    Will Bonide Stump Out Stump & Vine Killer kill a black locust tree and roots?
    A

    Bonide Stump Out Stump & Vine Killer is labeled for locust. 

    To apply as a Stump Treatment: Apply this product undiluted to kill stumps and prevent sprouting. Using the applicator top, completely cover the freshly cut surface. 

    To use for Vine Control: For best results when treating vines such as poison oak, poison ivy, etc. that grow on or around desirable plants, cut the vine first and treat as directed above for stump treatment. Do not let product contact desirable plants.

    To apply as a Foliar Spray: In a hose-end or tank sprayer, mix 8 to 16 tablespoons (4 to 8 fl. oz.) in enough water to make one gallon of spray mixture. Apply at the rate of one gallon spray mixture per 500 sq. ft. Coverage will depend on the amount of foliage to be treated. Apply as a thorough foliage spray to wet all leaves using a coarse spray pattern with low pressure. Use the higher rate for mature or hard-to-control plants (such as ash, blackgum, choke cherry, elm, maple, oak, pine, or winged elm), or during drought conditions. Using low rates may result in resprouting of weeds in a year following treatment. Make applications when brush and weeds are actively growing with full leaf coverage. In 1 to 6 weeks, symptoms such as wilting will occur. Make applications when the air is calm. Effectiveness may be reduced if rainfall occurs with 24 hours of application.
