    So Op I have a flea infestation in my backyard. I am currently cutting the grass and will be laying down Bioadvanced Lawn insect Killer to try and get the little bastards to die. I have 2 kids and we attempted to use their swing set yesterday and got attacked.

    Fight On Op!

    That sucks. I looked at a rental house some years back that was the same way. Took a few days before you felt like they weren't all over you....

    I just put down the pesticide and have sprayed down my dog as well. My poor dog seemed to have been the nest for the creatures

    I am fighting the fleas in the backyard. I have washed the dog and laid down the pesticide but still see the little fuckers jumping around. I found a few inside the house as well :annoyed:

    WHAT A dam MESS-your neighbors yard that is. I can look over the fence and see many things your neighbor is doing wrong and needs to take care of. A few: Trees growing waaay too close to his foundation , vines or Weeds growing up in his eaves and gables, trees and sprouts of trees ruining whatever is left of somebodies fence and more. You can learn a lot about about HOW NOT TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR property. These neighbors are truly asleep at the wheel.

    you are going to have to bomb your house...we had a stray cat dropped at our house in MD and the fleas just poured off this cat. We flea dipped it but in the meantime it infected our house. Had to have it flea bombed.

    This works good for the lawn.

    This is what I sprayed outside. 3 bottles worth. 1 in the front yard & 2 in the backyard. They I sprayed sown the dog. Figured I would get the grass first that way if any of the jumped from the dog they would land on the freshly sprayed grass

    Josh, If you are cutting with a chainsaw anywhere near that chainlink fence PLEASE FOR YOUR SAKE --be super careful. I have seen what will happen when a chain saw gets caught up in chain link fencing. Naturally the fence wire DOES NOT give, and when it DOES NOT, the saw can be thrown out of your hands toward your body in a very unpredictable way. I speak from experience -- Just narrowly missed getting cut bad when I thought I could get just close enough to not touch the fencing NOT !! It literally threw the saw back toward me while still running. If ever I have to cut trees/brush ever near one of these fences again, I will always use a lopping shears and or a hand saw. Also makes no difference how much experience you have with chainsaws as I have been cutting my own firewood for 35 years. BE CAREFUL - or better yet stay away with the chainsaw.

    @Slashaar got out in between the storms and mowed my backyard.

    This was a week of growth. But with inches of rain over the last few days and daytime high temps have only been in the fifties.

    Dayum, that's an ideal ball catching yard for a family.

    Great looking yard!

    I need to repost it. I took it down because a friend was supposed to buy it but he decided to dump it back off at my parents house instead of paying me. Then proceeded to not say anything until I asked him about it a week ago.
    I was using a cordless reciprocating saw. If I do a bunch of trees it'll be right along the top of the fence and then I'll try to negotiate with the neighbor to get a privacy fence in and tear out the old chainlink.
    Looking good! :thumbsup:
    My storm break is tomorrow so hopefully it'll be dry enough to mow. (no standing water)

    Right now we are figuring out how we want to do the shed. Concrete pad or pavers.

    My vote would be concrete pad.

    Wonder what the costs are gonna be. I've already sunk $680 into the shed itself. :annoyed:
    Priced it out to DIY and it's about $360 just for materials and a tamper and a big level.
