Hi Smiler, Nut is right dont go wasting money on sprays and such ,and dont cut it till you know what your doing,iv been there before and got advise from an expert ,it can take 2 to 3 years to eradicate its not too expensive, Find the sours of it and get good advise from the proper people dont start worrying and dont take advise from anyone except the experts ,much cheeper in the long run, good luck.
