Does the State of Ohio have a list of invasive/alien plants that should be destroyed if we come across them in our yards?

While there doesn’t seem to be any official language that says you have to destroy it, that would be the most efficient way to make sure that you don’t allow it to spread which is in the language. It is suggested that you destroy the plants. A list can be found at https://bygl.osu.edu/node/983 , http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/901:5-30-01 and/or https://agri.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/oda/divisions/plant-health/invasive-pests/invasive-plants . The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has an abbreviated list of the most common invasive plants at http://ohiodnr.gov/invasiveplants . I rather liked this last resource because you can click on each name and get information and a picture of the plant.
