    Description

    Three or more annual sprays are required to eliminate Japanese honeysuckle where 2,4-D, a mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T, or amitrole is applied as either a low-volume (mistblower) or high-volume spray. Dicamba and picloram are more effective. The mixture of 2,4-D and picloram is recommended as the best material for eliminating honeysuckle in a single treatment at the time of harvesting overstory trees. However, 3 gallons of the material, costing about $33, are required per acre.
