To help keep your season full of good times, teach everyone in the family to recognize poison ivy and oak.  For poison ivy the old saying is, "Leaves of three, let it be!"  This is excellent advice for people who are sensitive to the poison ivy plant. 

Poison ivy is generally a wood plant with three leaflets.  It can be a vine growing up the side of a tree or building.  It can also be a self-supported shrub.  If someone is exposed, have them wash carefully, launder clothes separately, and contact your physician for more information on how to treat a reaction to poison ivy.

When gardening in infested areas, wear long-sleeved shirts and gloves.  Treat poisonous plants with the proper chemical and carefully remove the vines.  Poison ivy still has enough oil to cause a rash on the skin of some individuals two years after the vine has been killed!

Another summertime/outdoor concern are insects.  A serious and growing concern is the deer tick which carries Lyme's disease.  Lawn treatments with insect control will eliminate ticks present at the time of application.  Homes near woods have a greater exposure to ticks.  Check children and pets for ticks whenever they've been playing or hiking through the woods.

In summary, take time to make time this summer for prevention against ticks and toxins due to poisonous plants.
