Location Specific Management Information
Hand pulling may be effective in small populations, but seems futile for large populations since it is difficult to eliminate the seed sources. It is important to attack small infestations as soon as possible, and to attack them vigorously (Elizabeth Farnsworth, in Tu, 2000).
Burning is not effective in controlling M. vimineum (Donnelle Keech, in Tu, 2000).
