Poison Ivy

Is there ever a time when you can touch poison ivy without getting the rash? Like when it is dead? And how do you tell when it is dead?

No. While these plants do go dormant in fall and winter, be aware that they can still cause problems. The poison remains active even after the plant is dead. So even if you think it's dead, you can still get a rash from contact with the plant.
