Your approach is the best - just don't give up! Studies show that persistently pulling bindweed is the best control strategy. Bindweed produces enough energy to start strengthening the roots when it reaches the six-leaf stage, so never allow plants to produce more than six leaves. Pull them as soon as you recognize them. Eventually you'll starve out the roots of the pesky plants.
