Got a Poison Ivy Problem?
This site will help identify it for you.
If you are not familiar with the Poison Ivy Plant, you probably have never come into contact with it yet. Once you get it, you become very aware of where it is on your property. If you have the plant, you will want to know what it looks like so that you can take care in working in the yard in the future. There is a site available that will help identify the plant for you.
If you send a photo to the KillMyPoisonIvy.com E-mail address, they will let you know if the plant is poison Ivy. Pretty cool! The company actually provides a service to remove the poison ivy; something to consider if you live in Burlington MA.
While I was in the hardware store today I noticed there was a product for sale for relief of the symptoms of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. It is no fun getting the itchy, scratchy effects of the “poison” plants; it is good to know that there is a product to correct the itchiness. If your local hardware stores do not carry this product it can be ordered through the web site - http://www.poisonivysoap.com/
Prevention of the symptoms is best; identifying the plants can help in avoiding it. If you have property and poison ivy is known to grow in the area, find out if you have it. If you come into contact with it, have a way of correcting the discomfort.
