Trash It

Although this is nice looking plant  it is however, in fact leading to serious harm in you local environment. The reason for this is because shrub species like invasive honey suckle will shade out any other kind of understory regeneration or native shrubs. Deer are also known to avoid feeding on this plant due to it low notional leaves. Also, honeysuckle produces hundreds of berries that bird will regularly consume, however these berries are not a suitable source of fat for migrating birds. This also spreads the seeds into natural areas where it can be hard to locate them. The best way to deal with this plant is to cut the stem and apply an appropriate herbicide to the stump and dispose of all fragments. The seeds it produces can also last a long time in the soil which allows it to resurrect in an area even long after years of treatment.
