What are theses weeds?

Asked May 3, 2019, 4:31 PM EDT

My yard has been pristine up until this year. These two types of weeds are trying to infiltrate my yard. What are they and how can they be controlled. Thanks

The first weed looks like hairy bittercress that has already gone to seed. The weed in the middle photo is chickweed (probably mouse-ear or hairy chickweed). Both of these are early season weeds past their prime. The third photo shows a very healthy lawn which is the best defense against weeds. There is no need to use an herbicide on these weeds now. Herbicides do not work on mature weeds.
