Weeds and Invasive Plants

Noxious weeds are harmful to agricultural and horticultural operations.

Noxious weeds contain toxic compounds found in the sap of plant stems, leaves and flowers. These toxic compounds may become absorbed by your skin and energized when exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun on both sunny and cloudy days.

You can be exposed through inhalation (breathing), skin contact, eye contact or ingestion (swallowing).

Exposure to these compounds can cause serious rashes, burns or blisters to your skin. Contact with eyes may lead to temporary or permanent blindness. Your airway could swell closed from mucus membrane exposure.

When exposed to fire these plants can be an inhalation hazard as the smoke/fumes emitted can blister your airways and lungs.
