How To Control Honeysuckle Vines On Boxwoods?

Q: We have some really old boxwoods that honeysuckle has almost taken over. How can I kill the vine? 

A: The best honeysuckle control is to clip the vine at ground level under the boxwoods and immediately dab some glyphosate (Roundup, etc) on the stump using a foam paintbrush. You can then pull the vine out completely and the stump will not resprout.
