We found these plants climbing the shed and we have no clue what they are. We have our suspicions on the one but not sure. If anyone has input that's be great if it is not a nice plant we want to kill it before it's too late.

not sure about the first.

the second ide say is virginia creeper cuz of the toothed 5 leafs and they should have little sticky cups that stick them to surfaces. if it is then they contains crystals that can irritate the skin.

well many people like having them beacause in fall they turn bright red rivaling any maple tree.

however they are no good for pets and humans to touch or eat any berrie that may come out. they will grow to 50 feet and more covering entire houses or sheds
