You did not mention if the bamboo is on your property. If so, see the information on our publication for elimination. This is not an easy process.
Begin by viewing our publication on bamboo http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG28%20Bamboo.pdf
If the bamboo is not on your property, you will have to contact the property owners and discuss with them. mh
