Authority to the authorities: check the gardens for ambrosia! I: Beware of the juice of the Giant Bear Bear!
(ty) The Pfaffenhofen Regional Office invites all citizens to control their own gardens in view of the presence of Ambrose. Ambrose – also called the "Ambrose" – begins to bloom in early July. Immediately after that comes the distribution of pollen. "Because of its high allergy potential, this plant is dangerous for people suffering from allergies as well as healthy people," says Andreas Kastner of the Lower Nature Protection Agency. "Especially during the flowering period from July to October, symptoms such as itching of eyes, allergic rhinitis, coughs, breathing difficulties and asthma attacks may occur." He is also warned of a giant pig whose juice can lead to serious burns.
According to Kreis-Fachberater Kastner, the ambrose is best suppressed so that the whole plant is cut off. If the blooms are already visible, it is advisable to put a plastic bag before removing the plant, then shred with the backing and dispose of it.
"Disposal must be done in any case on the rest of the waste," says Kastner, and recommends: "When you clean up during flowering, wear a mouth protector – that is Feinstabmaske at least FFP2 or above – inevitably." Another note: "Gloves and safety glasses additionally protect against contact allergies."
Another invasive and highly resistant plant is by the Giant Bear's Office. "Herbal juice is phytotoxic," she says, "This means dangers, especially when the skin is dipped in juice by touching the sunlight."
Sometimes it can cause serious burns or redness. "Anyone who has a plant in a garden can usually get rid of it by cutting it with a shovel and protecting the body, face and eyes from contact with plant juice," says Kastner.
It is advisable to wear a protective suit with gloves and glasses. It was also desirable to perform this work in cloudy days or in the evening. "Plants should be removed before flowering or at least flowering," says Kastner.
He warns: "Plants usually flourish quickly after cutting, and the seeds even mature on hacked seeds, and seeds sometimes retain the ability to germinate for several years, so seed may not be allowed to enter the compost."
According to information from Ambrosia and Riesenbärenklau district offices, they are often confused. "As the name implies, a giant pig is a large, large plant, and the ambrose is very sensitive, which is only a few inches tall at present." Kastner appealed to citizens: "Please do not consider removing or reporting on the reserves of these plants as a duty, but as an active contribution to protecting our environment."
