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


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.
