I've never seen it get meally bug, but then again, we're in northern california in a relatively dry climate. If you say where you're located, someone else might be able to answer your question.

Spreading? - How do you keep the bamboo from spreading to your neighbors and everywhere else?

I had black bamboo planted on the sides of my yard for privacy about 8 years ago. It has begun to spread all over my backyard and I don't know what to do. I live in Los Angeles. This house is in the San Fernando Valley. It's becoming a huge problem. I've attached 2 photo's. The bamboo when originally planted around 2004 and then a second pic from around 3 years ago. I need help! Not sure who to reach out to. Any suggestions?

Black bamboo is a runner and needs to have a bamboo barrier when planted to keep it contained. I say this for future readers as you already know this!

Call Bamboo Giant - they are in Northern California but will tell you exactly what to do. There may also be an equivalent company that specializes in bamboo nearer to you.

probably not - according to Monrovia.com, it grows in zones 8-10. Somewhat more temperate climates.

I think something like this in between the our house and the neighbor would be a good way to go. I don't think the side fence has to be so solid. It could be free-standing panels and some bamboo. Then we could also have some bamboo in pots or a planter box right off the side deck to block the view of his house.
