Undiluted Round-up will help kill the roots. You will need to wound the roots (normally, people cut the suckers down and use those wounds) and then paint the undiluted Round-up on the wounds. The bigger or more wounds you paint, the better. The roots will suck the Round-up in and it will kill them. You may have to repeat the process a few times to fully kill the roots if the root system is still strong.
