Thanks! At least our thistles and burdocks can be killed with a regular herbicide (2-4D) making controlling pretty easy if you stay on it.

So with all the difficulties in controlling "stickers", as well as how easily they're unknowingly spread, how can you expect someone to guarantee there are none in his hay fields? I'm not sure if you've ever put up your own hay, but I know I wouldn't offer any such guarantee.

These Stickers are problems of sandy soils....what we call watermelon sand. But under the circumstance of being in hay, they can find their way to the heavier soils. However, they don't thrive and are easier to get rid of in these cases.
