Beware of Toxic Giant Hogweed When Afield

the NJ Department of Agriculture on the highly toxic plant known as hogweed, which has been recently documented in our state.
Please be wary of this harmful plant while outdoors, as the sap can cause severe burns when present on the skin and exposed to sunlight. It can also cause blindness should sap get into the eyes.
Unfortunately, there are several plant species that look very similar to hogweed, with cow parsnip being the closest to mimic it. Therefore it is very important to become familiar with the appearance of hogweed. In addition, should you see this plant growing anywhere, please contact Chief Mark Meyer of the NJ Dept. of Agriculture's Bureau of Biological Pest Control at609-203-9478.
