Janapese Bittersweet and other invasives

My yard is over run with Jananese bittersweet, wild roses and wild raspberries. We have pulled up and cut down as much as we can. How do we attack the new things coming up and the new shoots off of trunks that were too thick to pull up?

Japanese bittersweet is an invasive species. First, report it to your local county extension service and/or master garden program. They may send someone out to take a look and recommend a solution. The way to get rid of invasive plants is by a combination of digging them and poisoning them with glyphosate, the active ingredient in Round-Up.
