Question: I have a yard full of the above. Other than Round up, what can I use to destroy the many bulbs? Thank you.

Answer: Even Round-Up won't kill the plants because they store carbohyrates (energy) in the bulbs and will resprout eventually. The only sure fire way of removing the plants permanently is to dig them up, one at a time, bulb and all. Wish there were an easier approach!
