Here's a trick I've used in sensitive areas on vine crap.
Small plastic bowl with a half inch of roundup in the bottom. On calm day, set next to weed and place the vine in the bowl and let it sit there all day. Remove from dish and watch it croak.
Now that just sick! You don't have to enjoy torturing them!
Nothing kills it and it spreads underground. I've sprayed it with 2-4D, Round up and Treflan. It looks a little sad and that's all.
Another thing; the same chemical that the farmers and contractors use, is a stronger product than the homeowners get. That's because homeowners are know for "putting a little bit more" in the sprayer. We have to spray dandelions and ground ivy twice and wait a while. When I used the commercial stuff, it killed them first time, right now!
