My Wife and one Sister work for the local GP here...They are having a major influx of patients with burns lately...All from people that are unaware of Wild Parsnip and why you should be careful around the stuff...

It is invasive and prolific...It is everywhere around here now...

Tell your crews to watch it Les!!!

thanks Salmoneye!    Posted 07-16-2003 at 07:09:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've never heard of it, but it looks familiar so I probably have it...have every other danged weed in the world in my fields so why not that.

My 18 yr. old just got into this stuff last weekend at a golf course. He went into the creek
to get lost golf balls. Now he knows what it looks like! It did continue to spread a little
for 3 days, but then stopped. Thanks for the
picture, I'll be able to warn the whole family.

Seems as though I might have seen that stuff.

It is only the last 5-6 years that I noticed it...Thought it was a variety of Queen-Annes-Lace with yellow flowers...It kinda is related to it...

The ER here and the GP are seeing lots of cases a week now...

Been along the roadsides here but now I noticed it in my back meadow too...Hogged it all yesterday and then took a shower...Sun exposure can apparently burn you in 30 minutes...

Nasty stuff...

I believe I've seen it along the road in my travels.
You sure do have the Queen Anne's Lace over your way. I saw more of that over to Button Bay than I've ever seen anywhere else.
