When I go fishing I'm constantly walking through poison ivy either on the ground or growing wildly above me off the branches of trees. The birds eat the berries and the poison ivy plants thrive; plus, I get to take home the oils on the leaves home with me. 🍂🥴👍

Steve Tingle, Gympie Gympie AKA suicide plant does look similar to a stinging nettle, but touching it is MUCH WORSE. There are stories (not sure if true or urban legends) of people being badly stung and then committing suicide rather than endure the pain of the stings.

Only giant hogweed found commonly in the UK, and it is a much feared invasive plant. Gympie-gympie looks like our common nettle but the rash only lasts a day or so - found that to my cost only a few days ago while weeding.

Tanya Yaksich, Yes, and oleander can be very toxic to pets as well. It amazes me that so many use it as an ornamental landscape plant.

I have been susceptible to poison ivy for as long as I can remember. Seem all I have to do is look at it and I'm broke out in a rash. I try to avoid it but its around my house. Sprayed weed killer on it last year, but it came back and even though I thought I'd not touched it, I just got over a bout of it on my arm.

edie demay, I had the unfortunate and uncomfortable experience of proving your admonition not to burn the leaves or vines. My dad was clearing the lot of our new house (1956) and had no idea it was present in the fire whose smoke of which I was constantly down wind. My brother and I were not a pretty sight the next morning.
