Will Sucker Punch kill other plants under my oak tree?

I have a boulevard live oak that has always had suckers. We planted native bromeliads near the trunk, and that section has few suckers as the bromeliads grew dense. farther out we have new, young bromeliads and the suckers are taking over through the mulch. Will spraying the oak shoots/suckers also kill our bromeliads?


Sucker Punch Ready to Use should be used as a very directed spray application to the cuts or sprouts that are coming up that are unwanted around the trunk areas. Overspray of the Sucker Punch can harm buds and foliage of flowers and neighboring plants if drift or overspray occurs. If the suckers are coming up throughout the bromeliad areas, we would suggest a very careful spray to the shoots or to pour a small amount of the solution into a bucket used for chemicals and use a paint brush to directly apply the product to the shoots.
