I've done a quick search on this subject and come up with some interesting

http://www.arapcsuext.org/agri/managbnd.htm  -  Lists the months of the year, in
table format, for active growth, flowering, seed production, mow/dig/cut and
herbicide application.  Illustrates that mowing and clipping are good sources of
control for starvation purposes.

http://members.spree.com/stribley/flowers/369.html - nice picture of what the
stuff looks like.

http://axp.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/WEEDS/field_bindweed.html - A more in depth
pictorial description.

It seems as though the chemicals of choice for bindweed is Tordon or 2,4-D.

Hope this helps.
