The plant is a member of the carrot family and has fern-like leaves and small white flowers that develop into small seeds with burrs that catch on fur and clothing.

The DNR urges landowners to pull small patches of the plants. If the plants are already flowering or have seeds people should burn them or bag them with the trash.
