Bush Honeysuckle elimination

Asked April 29, 2019, 8:42 AM EDT

I want to eliminate the bush honeysuckle that is growing in my landscaping and around my residential property. What is the best way to eliminate it? I was thinking of cutting it down, and then painting an herbicide on each stump. If I go this route, what kind of herbicide will work best?

Madison County Kentucky

Hi. The Forestry Department at UK did a great article that explains the best way to eradicate bush honeysuckle. Here it is: http://www2.ca.uky.edu/KYWoodlandsmagazine/Vol3_NO3/Forest%20Health%20pg%2013-15.pdf
