Gonna be a tough one to visualize I know, but I'm trying to figure out where
my cat is picking up these things.
Anyway, he's coming in with these BB sized green seeds(??) stuck to his fur
that take quite a bit of effort to remove. They aren't sticky so much as I
think they're more like velcro, they stick to all the fabrics in the house
which makes it tough to get rid of them with a vacuum.
Any ideas what plant is producing those? All I can think of is perhaps the
climbing Wisteria I have on my fence, the grass/weeds in the back 40 or what
I don't know.
More than likely a weed called "beggar's lice", fairly common throughout
North America. A Google for a picture should tell you if that's what it
is. My dog comes in when we haven't mowed for a bit with them sticking
to her legs.
Possibly, I haven't seen anything like that around, although I'm sure my cat
knows the local flora and fauna better than I do - and I have a big back
If it is weeds and there's not many of them, I won't worry too much about
it. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something I was planting in my
herb garden - like the rosemary or the lavender plants. I don't have any
experience working with herbs so I don't know how they reproduce.
Sorry I cant remember where you are,(Pacific coast?)
Anyway Forget me nots,
Bidens also called beggar-tick, sticktight, or bur marigold
Galium (bedstraw, cleavers)
are irritating possibilities.
