cut spray and paint method of removing bamboo
One person cuts, while another is poised to paint herbicide onto the cut surface.
Update… If you wear long gloves you can spray with a small atomiser bottle using full strength herbicide, instead of brushing. Spraying sure beats brushing.
And for big jobs, a third person to remove the cut culms (stems) and keep the ball rolling.
Timing is everything. The sap flowing through the plant withdraws downwards when the culm is cut.
We recommend using straight Glyphosate . Regrowth is treated in the same way. Cut off the bunches of foliage, paint/spray the remaining cut ends. And if it still comes back? Well do it again.
