Tetrachlorethane, made by the addition of chlorine to acetylene, has proved to be effective in killing the European bindweed. By making holes 18 inches deep and having the holes 18 inches apart and placing two ounces of tetrachlorethane in each hole, a complete eradication of the European bindweed may be made with one application.
