Will regular stuff do or a specialist weedkiller?

Depends on what the triffids really are. Have you a picture?
Cue a photo of Japanese knotweed...

You don't need weed killer, you can just pull that straight out of the ground. Very shallow rooted
That might just be the creepiest thing I’ve seen this year. Run, OP, run for your life.

Thanks appreciated, from memory does the clicking stop straight away? Or does it take a while to stop?

it will thrash around for a few minutes and it will let out a piercing scream when you pull it up so I would wear eat plugs
If I remember rightly decapitation is the answer 🌷

I think you're confusing it with mandrake there.

Forgot about mandrakes. They do it too. I wonder if they are from the same genus?
You need a flamethrower, really does depend on which variety they are the ones from the 60's, 90's or later, any more info
When an Amaryllis & a mandrake love each other VERY much.... (etc)

Yep, do check on the variety first, don't want to try tackling them with a flamethrower if you need sea water and an ice cream van.
Thanks guys, used a flamethrower but it didn't work, then I changed into some Really old clothes with a dodgy haircut and that seemed to do the trick
