We are putting up a new fence and found a TON of poison ivy behind/under our shed. The second problem is the neighbors shed is fairly close to ours, but on the other side of the fence and they have even more poison ivy than we do around & growing out of theirs. Does anyone have any helpful ideas/tips on what to do?
H has cut what he could of it but it is even intertwined in their chain link fence, which is not coming down. We bought lots of poison ivy killer and sprayed the crap out of everything, including what we could reach of the neighbors. But I read even after the poison ivy is "dead" the oils are still there and can last up to 5 years. H has been back in it today to set the posts but wore long clothing. He took off the clothing and washed it right away but I am fully expecting us to have a poison ivy outbreak because I feel like no matter what precautions we take, its unavoidable to come in contact with it with this project. I had a very bad reaction the last time I came in contact with it and am freaking out!
