One thing that works but is difficult to initiate is a cutting and herbicide program. First cut the entire stand to ground level during the late winter. Then, each time the stems reach 6 to 8 inches, cut it again. Obviously this is a weakening process and will stress out the plant. About mid to late August let the stems reach about 8 inches and then use a sponge applicator with round-up or a similar product. it may take two years to knock out a well established stand, but this method works well even in wooded areas with minimal impact on other vegetation.
Hope this helps

Thanks, Wayne, for your reply. However, Roundup is not labeled in CT for the control of SMILAX, therefore it is illegal to use. Mike
