Do you have Poison Ivy?

We've got it growing along the back of our property (its sneaking under our privacy fence). I want to go out there and rip it out of the ground but I'm such a sissy! I'm scared to death to go near it, even with 2 layers of rubber gloves. The last thing I want is to be all itchy, but it's got to go! I'm weary of spraying chemicals in my yard with having kids and dogs. Should I just suck it up and pull it out?!

  • Long sleeves, keep a bag that you can drop the plants, with roots, into. Wash clothes in hot water. What I do, though is to spray it. Read the spray to see if it says not safe around children.
