The no selective herbicide, glyphosate (round up), can be applied to young leaves. Use a concentration of at least 38% active ingredient.As the publication will indicate, several applications may be needed.http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG28%20Bamboo.pdf
