Just brush up against any of these plants and you'll know about it, quickly.

Here in Maine we're forever out and about during the warm months. We work in the woods and our backyards, we hike, camp, and we walk the dog. And if the mosquitoes, horse and black flies aren't enough to keep you concerned, there are these plants.

They cause major and agonizing skin irritation that can last for weeks. So, it's best to familiarize yourself with what they are before leaving the safety of your home.

So study up, my friends! But, keep the Dawn dish washing detergent, Benadryl and alcohol pads close by just in case.
