The Q&A Archives: Removing Beggarweed?

Question: What is the best way to remove beggarweed without killing my grass? Please help as they are starting to spread every where and digging them out is useless!

Answer: The deep roots of beggarweed make them nearly impossible to eradicate with digging alone. Unfortunately I cannot find a readily available herbicide registered for homeowner use against this weed in turfgrass. I can only suggest you contact your local cooperative extension office for information about which products might be safe and available for eliminating this weed in your lawn.
