Hi Don, I am giving you a link to one that I have heard works but make sure to follow the instructions for best results.
(Spring) Prescribed burn. Fire alone isn’t enough to stop this invader. A spring burn causes the seed to germinate, and following up with herbicides is what will kill the plant. This should be followed with technique 2, 3, or 4. 2. (Spring) Hand pulling. This works best when the soil is moist and in areas without dense populations. Be sure to remove the entire root system. Check for re-sprouting. 3. (June– September) Herbicide. Apply triclopyr (2 pints per acre) in June or July. Then apply a 1% metsulfuron-methyl plus a surfactant solution in August or September. The plant must be actively growing in order for herbicide application to be effective. 4. (July– end of growing season) Mowing. Mow the plant before it flowers. This can help decrease or slow seed production. The plants should be mowed every time they reach 12 to 18 inches. It is most effective to follow up with mowing late in the growing season. Repeat for at least 3 consecutive years. Good luck highly invasive and extremely hard to get rid of.
