  1. Dow recommends using Garlon 4 Ultra on swallow wort. I don't know anything about this herbicide, or if it's available without a permit. http://www.dowagro.com/en-us/vm/weeds-brush/vines/s/swallow-wort-pale-and-black
  2. I, too, am dealing with HEAVY swallow wort infestation. In isolated patches I've had success with hand cutting the seed pods from the top of the vine (dispose of in trash) and covering the area with lots of leaves. However, I have about an acre of heavily infested field. I brush hogged it last year just to keep the seed pods from opening and spreading. This year I'm going to cut it short again, and then tarp as much as I can, for as long as I can. I figure "hot rotting" can't hurt at this point since nothing else seems to work and I don't have thousands of dollars to hire help. There is a swallow wort workshop at the Brandon library at 10am on the 22nd of July.
