Several are not translocated. Anything that ends in "quat". Paraquat is one. These are the ones they use on railways that turn the trees brown all at once. But should not be used by the average homeowner as they are unhealthy if you breathe them in directly.

Do you do this only once a year? I'd wait until a cold day in winter to do some whacking when the snakes are bugs are gone or hibernating.

That is probably the best solution. I have been waiting until they grew and then loping them off at the top. I should probably wait until this winter and cut them off at the base.
