In this regard, what damage can Canada thistle do?
<>Ecological Role: The Canada thistle is capable of crowding out and replacing many native grasses and forbs. It is detrimental to natural areas where it occurs, particularly non-forested communities, and it can change the natural structure and species composition where it becomes well-established.
Will mowing kill thistles?
It is possible to kill the thistles in your lawn, but you can't do it overnight. A very effective way to remove them is to cut them off at ground level. Remove the whole top, but do not disturb the roots. When you cut the top, you deprive the root of its food, and it cannot make more food without green leaves.
