to get rid of it, just rip it out. it's some type of perennial, so just yank it.

They look like spring flowers to me and they will blow in Ohio if not cut off.

first one is a tulip, second is daffodil and third is wild onion. Somebody put bulbs in the middle of the yard without thinking about them, the wild onion you can spray with surge, the other two you can just rip out, should pull up bulb too.

you'll never get rid of them trying to rip them out. even the slightest bit of bulb left in the soil will grow next year.

Your pics are Tulips, Daffodils, and wild garlic. You CAN dig them up, just be sure to get all the daffodil bulbs. The tulips are the same, but they do not continue to multiply year after year like the daffodils. The garlic can be controled with 2-4-D.
