sticker weeds

I hate stickers! This one is in my yard and field. It looks like grass with slender blades that blend in well. In the early stages is stays pretty close to the ground. When the seeds start to ripen they lift their heads high and cling to anything that passes by. They seem to like the moist areas with sun best. What is it and how do I eradicate it. My yard and field is Bermuda and prairie grass. (one mans weed is another mans yard.) Picture attached.

RE: sticker weeds

Looks like you have what we used to call "sand burs", Cenchrus tribuloides. I remember stepping on them with bare feet as a child...

Please see the link below for some control tips.
