I live in a suburb of Chicago and have had an overabundance of tiny poison ivy plants everywhere in my yard and garden. Was wondering what would cause this. I have had poison ivy plants in the past, but nothing like this. I have gone through 4 gallons of poison ivy killer this season and almost have it in check.
I do live near a forest preserve and the deer frequently visit my yard. Could there be a connection? Thanks.
