Great info. I am not sure I'm ready to leave poison ivy, but I'd consider the others....


I was wondering why birds seem to ignore the large Elderberry bush in my front yard. There are so many deep purple berry clusters the branches are bowed over to the ground but the berries eventually just fall to the ground. Maybe they're waiting for pie?

I wonder if your elderberry is European, rather than our native and if that makes a difference?

Sarah, From what I understand, the birds poop out the seed in half an hour, which may cause a bigger problem or may not make any difference. The shrub route is the best solution I think.
