Got rid of crepe Myrtle and roots.

Got rid of crepe, pulled out roots- no stump was there. Getting suckers. If I put table salt or vinegar and cover with black plastic, will that stop suckers from growing?

Salt should work, but you won't be able to replant in the area for quite a while. An herbicide might be your best bet. Be sure to follow label instructions.
