The Big Thompson Conservation District has been monitoring and mapping noxious weeds all summer and in addition to finding many noxious weeds, found the following dangerous weeds in the Little Thompson watershed:
Jimson weed – Jimson weed is a summer annual broadleaf plant. All of its parts, particularly the seeds, contain alkaloids and when ingested are toxic to humans and livestock. Other names for the plant include Devil's Snare, Hell's Bells, Devil's Trumpet, Devil's weed, Tolguacha, Jamestown weed, Stinkweed, Locoweed, Pricklyburr and Devil's Cucumber.
Poison-hemlock – Poison-hemlock is acutely toxic to people and animals. The poisons in hemlock are so deadly that people have died after eating game birds that had eaten hemlock seeds. Poison-hemlock can be confused with wild carrot (Daucus carota, or Queen Anne's Lace), as with many other members of the parsley family that resemble it. It has hairless hollow stalks with purple blotches. It can get quite tall, sometimes up to eight feet or higher.
