What would I use to kill boobialla trees

Boobiallas are spreading around my property. I would like to spray them to kill them. They are a haven for starlings

Answer: Hi Andrew,

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding the issues you are having with the Boobialla or Myoporum insulare.

To get on top of these we recommend using Yates Tree and Blackberry Killer. It can be applied either by basal bark spraying or by the cut stump treatment.

Please check with your local council or local authority prior to removing these shrubs as different councils can have regulations protecting some species of native plants.

Kind regards
