Hogweed found on Stringtown Rd

Hogweed found on Stringtown Rd

This was posted on Nextdoor's website this morning. This is a very dangerous plant, worst than poison ivy. It has recently been seen growing on Stringtown Rd

Michael West,
Feed Me Seymour!! Actually don't!
Hello Sparks neighbors! ... We have been working with a gentleman from Maryland Dept of Agriculture this morning in identifying some dangerous GIANT HOGWEED in the area. We located a couple plants on the side of the road on Stringtown and then he found hundreds down by the creek near the pipeline clearing. He sprayed the ones he found and he is contacting the people who clear the area because they are unknowingly causing the severely dangerous and highly invasive plant to spread throughout the area. I worry that many are not familiar with the plant. And with so many cycling through the area or with people walking dogs, that someone could be injured if they are not aware of the danger.  If you see the plant growing, DO NOT attempt to remove, please call the number on his card pictured or you can spray with a heavy duty weed killer. This plant can blind you or severely burn your skin, please be safe and pass on this info. (not our pics, just pics from the web to illustrate the danger)

It was posted on the BBC website I think last year or before but since now that it has been seen on Stringtown Rd I thought it should be posted again.
