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!

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.
