What weed killer will kill off Cobbler’s pegs (Bidens pilosa )???

Hello, I have a HUGE cobblers peg issue in my vege patch and it is just getting worse. I can weed by hand, but after 2 hours of uprooting these blighters, I haven't even scratched the surface.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance Katja :)

Answer: Hi Katja,
The best option to control the cobbler’s pegs in a vegetable garden is to use a weeding wand with Zero Glyphosate. If you use a selective herbicide similar to those used on the lawn, the vegetables and herbs may be over sprayed and badly affected or killed. As well there is the problem of residues in the vegetables. A weeding wand is the most effective way of applying the herbicide Zero without accidentally spraying your produce and you will be able to carefully apply Zero without contacting anything edible.
