    How can I kill honeysuckle?

    A:

    You can kill a honeysuckle plant by pulling it out yourself, cutting them, or in dire cases of invasions, by using herbicides. The first suggestion works only for young plants as most honeysuckle varieties have shallow root systems. Cutting them may not work if you're not diligent at it because it may just grow back days after being severed while using herbicides has its disadvantages as well.
