We bought a new house in the county last summer.Since we moved here we have been plagued by poison ivy. We are not even sure where it is coming from. We have strayed the vines that we have found, and stay clear away from them. That isn't enough though because my children get it all the time. I have got to the point that I was only allowing my kids out on the back deck, but that hasn't even helped. They are both blistered right now.It is a shame that I don't want to take my kids outside to play because I am scared to death that they are going to somehow get it in their mouth or something crazy like that. My kiddos are all under 5,so they do some crazy stuff. I am really stressed about this. The only thing I can think of is to send my husband outside to spray everything he sees. I just don't know to do. I would move if the housing market wasn't so low! Does anyone have any suggestions?
