Noxious Weed is taking over my lawn

Asked April 2, 2019, 3:11 PM EDT

Can you identify this noxious weed which is growing like crazy this spring all over our back yard, taking over the lawn. What should I use to get rid of it?

This is hairy bittercress, which is having a banner year. It produces tons of exploding seeds, so it's good to get ahead of this one. Here is our page on what encourages it, and how to manage it: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/hairy-bittercress
