    A good weed and feed in the spring is a good start and spot treat with round up that is safe for grass after that. Using vinegar or boiling water will kill the surrounding grass.

    A broadleaf herbicide like Weed b Gone.

    Depends on how many you have. Spot treat for a few, but if you have lots of them, then you will have to kill the entire area (grass too) and wait a couple of weeks to reseed with grass. Basically the root system of this plant is an interconnected maze a few inches under the ground. It will keep coming up again and again unless the root system is entirely eradicated.
