How do you get rid of bamboo?
Our elderly neighbor has bamboo in her yard and has never taken care of it. It has spread to everyone elses yards as well. Its very invasive. I find runners 6 to 8 feet from her clump i her yard all the way into my yard. These runners went under my lavender bushes killing off all 6 of them. I'm tired of digging the stuff up. This is the type of bamboo that grows 20' tall or more. For 20 years we've been digging this stuff up. When we bought our house we sprayed tryox which is no longer available. It didn't work anyway. The bamboo turned black at first but then in a week it was several feet taller already. Other than digging a ditch around my yard and filling it with cement what else can be done to keep it out of my yard?
By the way, I'm in PA. Any tips on getting rid of this stuff for good?
