Invasive Oxeye Daisies

A couple of years ago I had some Oxeye Daisies which I planted in the garden.  I didn't realise how invasive they can be and now have them taking over the edge of one lawn and almost covering a small front lawn.  Although not an Organic gardener, I don't use weedkillers or slug pellets.  I thought I had dug all the plants out of the lawn last year, which took hours, but unfortunately they have come back with a vengence now, as I can see them as seedlings.  I did not let them flower last year as they are mowed regularly in the lawn, but they are still spreading.  Is weedkiller the only answer?

    They will not survive regular close mowing.(every three days)  You could use a lawn weedkiller, that kills everything except grass.
    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Will try mowing more frequently as you suggest but may have to resort to lawn weedkiller... Thanks for reply.
