Many people are very allergic to poison oak and poison ivy, requiring medical attention. Do you know how to remove poison oak from your yard for good? It might save your life (or the life of a loved one).
Many years ago, my father in law came to visit us all the way form Romania. He quickly decided he was going to surprise us by trimming an overgrown area of our garden, now knowing that there was poison oak in that grape vine.
Poor guy! A few days later he was full of rashes all over his body since he didn’t know what just happened to him, he didn’t say a thing until it was too late). We actually had to take him to the emergency room for a shot.
Don’t let that happen to your family.
Learn to recognize poison oak and then remove it from your property.
There are 3 ways to go about it:
- remove poison oak manually
- apply herbicides to it
- hire a professional: this is necessary if your poison oak infestation is extended. I’d rather let a professional do it than get it all over me.
