Colorful Poison Ivy

Colorful fall poison ivy

It is everywhere right now in the northern states: poison ivy is among most lovely fall color you will see, which will likely cause a few sad people to pick poison ivy leaves to decorate the house. The results can be really awful. Breaking the vines will release tons of urushiol, the oil that causes the rash. Then people will drive with that oil on their hands and get it on their faces, steering wheel, children, etc. Then they will hang the leaves on the door on in the house, so the oil will drip and spread around. 

BE WARY OF FALL VINES WITH PRETTY COLORS! LEAVES OF THREE? LET THEM BE!
