Corpus Christi, TX(Zone 9a)

Would like help I.D.ing these: were growing in shady area near my friend's home. She wants to know whether to pull or conserve. She has physical disabilities, so I'm her "designated gardener" at times. It seems that these things have prickly seeds that really stick to ya!

This pic shows seed cluster (greenish brown-middle right)
& one flower (small yellow in upper left)

To me it seems to be a Bidens of some sort...

Indeed! Thank you. I was previously unfamiliar with this genus. Nasty little buggers! No wonder they're often called "needles" or (like many plants with barbed or adhesive seeds) "ticks."
