Beware of the Giant Hogweed


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)–The sap from the Giant Hogweed acts like reverse sunscreen causing bad dermal burns. If you are exposed to the sap from this 8 to 14 foot plant you need to wash it off right away with soap and water, Dr. Cathrine McGlynn of NYS DEC says. Also leave the area covered from 24 to 48 hours.
