Manually removing the bulb would be the safest method of removal and the only way to ensure you have all of the plant.
The bulbs are generally about 3 to 4 inches below the surface of the soil.

Use of herbicide 2, 4D is not very effective on Star Of Bethlehem. It will kill the top plant but does not generally kill the bulbs.
