    You will want to remove flowers before they go to seed to control self seeding.
    You can also replace them with a cultivator that is sterile to avoid the issue of weed seeding.

    Hand removal is not likely an option. Keep the area mowed.

    You can try a pre emergent weed and feed on the lawn.
