Best way we have found is use a knife and shave them off. This woods has always had a few spots of them but this year they exploded everywhere.

Not sure. This woods is a creek bottom that usually floods a few times a year and this year i don't think it flooded at all. So that may be why this stuff went crazy

They are very annoying for sure.

Fun fact - a similar plant, burdock , is what gave a swiss inventor the idea to create hook&loop fastener better known as Velcro.

Agree with the two different seeds shown in the picture. Here, we call them beggar lice and spanish needles.

We call those burrs here.Find them in foxes tails occasionally.They comb out a lot easier than burdock.
Dont set snares in a meadow where they grow.

Spanish needle, the thin blacks in the photo, is a bee plant providing good amounts of pollen and nectar. In some areas it's enough to make a crop of honey on.

Best way to get them off is to bring them into the house and let the wife deal with them. Just make sure your dog house is well heated. lol
