Otherwise be very careful because even the dust from it can get on you, in your eyes, etc. That is why you don't want to burn it--even the fumes can have particles that are still allergenic.
Who is this person, I might need to hire them! I was just hacking at my infested easement today and a piece manage to touch me on my arm where my sleeve pulled up above my gloves. I washed right away and keeping my fingers crossed.

OP, be careful if you decide to remove it yourself.

Or maybe just mildly sensitive. I have tons of it around the woods in my yard and it doesn't bother me too much. If I feel itchy in a spot, I rub impatiens capensis juice on it and that clears it up.

It also helps to be able to identify it. Most of mine is coming up now. I do my best to avoid touching it, which may also help in avoiding a reaction.

Does anyone have experience with the Tyvek or similar coverall suits? I'm thinking of wearing one with thick clothes underneath, but it says they only protect against dry particulate. Are they enough to stop the oil from penetrating?
