How to get rid of White Snakeroot

Asked August 1, 2017, 1:38 PM EDT

I am almost sure I have the White Snakeroot plant in my back yard. I understand this is an extremely toxic plant and I want to get rid of it. We have many plants that have grown very large. What is the best and safest way to exterminate this plant?

Good afternoon,

My apologies for delay in response. Is the weed in pasture? garden? near streams?

Yes, as you noted, the weed can be toxic if consumed in both humans and animals. Depending on where you are finding this weed could play a role on how to remove.
