    There are a handful of weeds that I strongly suggest extensive control methods if found, and one of those weeds is poison hemlock.
    This is not a weed to overlook especially if you own livestock, because all parts of this weed are poisonous to livestock.
    Poison hemlock was introduced to the United States as an ornamental in the 1800s and has spread throughout most of Kentucky and much of North America.
    If ingested, poisoning symptoms appear within 30 minutes to two hours, depending on several factors including the animal species and quantity consumed.
