Learning how to kill stinging nettles is the only way to cure or prevent them from bothering you. They are not a major threat, but they do cause problems with people who take care of them. For example, when clothes are washed they pull the hairs out. If the hairs are pulled too much, they end up in the eyes, leading to irritation and even itching. But if the clothes are washed properly, then it shouldn’t bother you.
The first step is to identify perennial nettles and other plants that contain the resin urushiol, which attracts and excites the hairs. You need to find out which parts of the plants contain the urushiol, as this is where you will target them. The easiest way to identify them is to touch the underside of a leaf to check if there is a resin-causing lump underneath. This lump is the scent gland. The next step is to locate the gland, which is either located above or below the leaf surface. Look carefully at the gland to see how it is shaped, as this will help you to know how to kill stinging nettles.
Once you have located the gland, use a sharp pair of nail clippers to cut it off. Next, extract the contents of the gland out. Once you’ve done this, mix together a medium strength nettle solution (sometimes called nettle soap) and a small amount of dish soap. Apply this mixture to the stinging nettles, avoiding them to touch each other.
Now you have the two components, mix together using a small saucepan. Once the mixture is mixed, place it over the open area, and bring it up to the edge of the leaf. If your nettle rash is located on the underside of a leaf, allow the stinging nettle to sit on the leaf’s underside while spreading the mixture around. Continue this procedure until the stinging nettles are completely covered with the mixture. You can now begin controlling stinging nettles by applying the nettle solution to the rash.
Another way to control stinging nettles is to cover the area with a piece of clothing, such as a bandage, or clothing that you generally wear when outside. Nettles can still attack the skin, even after they have been soaked with the nettle solution. Therefore, you should not leave the solution on the skin for more than one day. On the second day, wash the area with water, and apply some antiseptic lotion to help the itching and irritation to subside. You can also take some capsules of vitamin A, zinc, or potassium, which can help alleviate the irritation. Once the medication has been applied, you can expect the nettles to die off within a few days.

At this point, the leaves are also more susceptible to dryness and cracking. In order to prevent brown spots on the leaves and brown spots on the flowers, it is recommended that you shift your garden hose or trays out of direct sunlight, which may cause damage to the leaves and flowers. This problem can also be solved by placing rocks over the area where the plant’s roots are located.

Some people have found partial shade to be as effective as total shade, although the partial shade takes longer to become effective. You may need to experiment with the shade to find the combination which gives you the best results.
