WILD BLACKBERRY BRUSH IS INVASIVE AND IS A PERSISTENT NUISANCE IN OUR AREA. BLACKBERRIES CAN BE KILLED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WITH PROPER TIMING AND TREATMENT USING AN HERBICIDE LABELED TO KILL THIS NOXIOUS PEST. HOWEVER, THE FALL SEASON IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE BEST TIME TO APPLY HERBICIDES TO KILL BLACKBERRIES FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS. RAIN BEGINS FALLING AGAIN AFTER THE DRYNESS OF SUMMER, AND IT HELPS STIMULATE THE BLACKBERRY PLANT’S METABOLISM. THIS AIDS IN THE MOVEMENT OF APPLIED HERBICIDES INTO THE PLANT. ALSO, THE BLACKBERRY PLANT BEGINS TO VIGOROUSLY DRAW THE ENERGY IT HAS PRODUCED IN ITS LEAVES DURING THE GROWING SEASON, DOWN INTO THE PLANTS ROOT SYSTEM FOR WINTER STORAGE. THIS ACTION IS THE MEANS THAT PRODUCES SUCH A COMPLETE KILL DURING THE FALL SEASON. AS THE PLANT PULLS THIS ENERGY OUT OF ITS LEAVES TO THE ROOT, IT ALSO DRAWS THE APPLIED HERBICIDE INTO THE ROOT SYSTEM IN A VERY EFFECTIVE MANNER. GENERALLY, THE RESULT IS A SUPERIOR BLACKBERRY KILL.
