My back yard is being swallowed by Kudzu.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia and my back yard has been infested by Kudzu (A weed imported from Japan to control erossion) for a long time. It's really hard to keep up with it by hand pulling only. The roots go quite deep and it prolifarates amazingly quickly.
My wife suffers a rare disease that makes her quite sick if expossed to harsh quimichals.
Does anyone know how to get rid of Kudzu by natural or organic means.
Please help if you know of any suggestions.

I really hope you find some help. Around June of every year I get hit with it bad and it grows amazingly fast. I have someone spray it with roundup once it starts to appear and it stays gone the whole season. I know you said you wanted organic means, but can you just spray once per season? It will stay away, but then come back in a year.

I haven't had to deal with Kudzu yet. I am attaching a link for whatever it is worth. I know some people have had goats graze it to at least reduce the volume.

Here is a link that might be useful: Kudzu
