Perilous Plants Millsboro DE

If you’re careful about where you walk, stand and sit, and mindful of what you touch, many of these hazards can be avoided. Plants can’t run away. In order to protect themselves from being eaten by deer and other animals, they have to be more creative in their defenses. Some produce dangerous toxins to keep from being eaten. Others grow sharp thorns to protect their fruits and flowers.

Perilous Plants




Poison IvyPlants don’t often top the list when we think of dangers awaiting us outdoors, but they can carry defenses ranging from annoying thorns to dangerous poisons. If we don’t treat some plants with the respect they deserve, the consequences can range from uncomfortable to deadly. As your outdoor activities heat up this summer, keep these tips in mind to help ensure your outdoor fun remains happy and safe.

If you’re careful about where you walk, stand and sit, and mindful of what you touch, many of these hazards can be avoided. Plants can’t run away. In order to protect themselves from being eaten by deer and other animals, they have to be more creative in their defenses. Some produce dangerous toxins to keep from being eaten. Others grow sharp thorns to protect their fruits and flowers.

POISON IVY
Poison ivy, western poison oak and poison sumac are the leading contenders in the annoying plant competition. These related plants contain a poisonous sap called urushiol, which inflicts a painful rash in 90 percent of the people who touch them. Other plants, such as Virginia creeper and milkweed, can also cause allergic reactions, although they’re rarely as serious.

There are many myths about poison ivy, oak and sumac. Let’s dispel some of them so you can have an accurate understanding of the dangers.
      •  The rash is not contagious. You cannot get or spread it without touching the sap directly.
      •  Scratching the rash and popping blisters will not spread the rash, unless you haven’t washed off
         all the sap. By breaking open the skin, however, scratching can lead to infection. Try to resist
         the itch.

PREVENTION
      •  Learn to recognize these plants in order to avoid contact. “Leaves of three, let them be” is a helpful
         saying to remind you to avoid poison oak and poison ivy. Poison sumac has from six to 10 parallel
         leaves on each branch, with a single leaf at the end. Check out www.poisonivy.aesir.com for
         good photos and more information about these plants.
      •  Wear long pants and sleeves to prevent the sap from contacting your skin. Run the clothes through
         the laundry if there’s a chance urushiol may be on them.
      •  Hose off your dog before petting her, if she’s been romping through areas where these plants
         grow. Oil on her fur can transfer to you.
