I'm afraid that digging and pulling are the best options. If you can fence the area to keep your chickens, geese and ducks out, you can cut the stems of the plants and immediately paint Round Up on the newly cut stems. The chemical will translocate to the roots but not move into the soil. When the stems and roots are dead you can pull or dig them out of the soil. Hope this helps!
