They'll put it in a trash can if leave one out for them. not sure if they will take it with them or not. But if you don't mind paying, I'd recommend them they did a great job.

Not to laugh ... but how long have you had dogs that this is the first time you've ever noticed what happens to organic waste in the summer??

Also, if you've got a plastic trashbag/liner, the flies - while icky - aren't really going to hurt you. Just take the trashbag (waste, flies, insects, mold and all) - throw it out, put a new one in.

I can't believe people don't know that's what happens...

Yes, airtight would help (no flies, no larvae) - also should prevent the waste from decomposing as rapidly.

The doogy septic systems are a great idea -- just make sure you have well draining soil (just like for a human system). In clay, the cleaned water will not be able to drain and the system will not work effectively.

i am 42 years old and have had dogs all of my life. i have lived in Texas and just a few years in Georgia, but have never had this happen before. i currently live in South Texas where it is VERY hot, and lately been very humid and rainy.
also, many of the years that i have had dogs, i have lived on ranches or big wide open spaces where i didnt have a "backyard" to keep clean-they had acres to poop in.
luckily i am moving to the Hill Country of Texas next month, where it is slightly less humid and less hot..back close to the area of Texas I am from.

Yeah flies will get into everything!

I usually scoop once a day (sometimes have to do it more then once due to pooping schedules), sometimes I can only get to it every other day also. I get my supplies- empty dog food bag, bucket & pooper scooper.

I fill the bucket with poo then I dump it in the dog food bag. Then I roll down the dog food bag and put it in the dumpster. Sometimes I spray with parvolan, just depends. I don't usually let people come out here but if they do they can bring diseases with them so its better to be safe then sorry.

I have a sewer pipe that comes out of my bathroom wall to the outside that has a lid. This is the same place that a plumber puts his roto-rooter thing if you have a stopped up toilet. The lid screws on & off very easily, it's only about 4 inches in diameter. I drop the dog poop down the hole, then the first time someone in the house flushes or runs water the poop goes with it into the sewer. I would think most houses would have this, but probably most of them are underground, mine just happens to stick up out of the ground & be very accessible.

Do you have a fence around your yard ? If you do this works great for us. just pick up the poop, toss it over the fence into your neighbors yard and then you are done . Kidding , we use bio degradable pet waste bags and set it out with the garbage.

It probably was maggots. Were there ALOT of flies around?
I've found the easiest way for me to handle dog poop is to put on a disposable latex glove....double up some plastic grocery bags and to go pick it up. I tried to get my son to do doggie pick up until I watched him try to pick up every little bit with a shovel and good lord...it took forever....Then I tie off the bag and rebag the load in yet another bag....this isn't so much to fend off maggots....but more so to not be so offensive to my trashman...
