Bamboo roots can spread everywhere if not contained and will take effort. I found some good information and attached the links below. Hope this helps with your runaway bamboo.
As you're learning, bamboo is tough to kill. You'll have to try a combination of methods. Dig up as much of the root masses as you can, mow/cut whatever comes up and knock it back with herbicides (not conditioner salt -- you'll ruin the soil.) See the link below for Clemson University's control recommendations, which go into detail about weed killers to use.
