Call Child Protective Services. Every state has a similar program.

I had a similar problem and the single-parent mom and all her kids were gone in a month.

In NV, try this link: Nevada's Child Welfare and Child Protective Services

This stuff is cruel. The birds get stuck in it and can't get out of it. It's a very slow death for a bird.

I really don't think letting kids play unsupervised in a backyard would be considered child endangerment.

To the OP, is this an HOA development? Is the neighbor an owner or renter? There are several possibilities/issues that would come out of those two questions. If there is an HOA, maybe they can lean on the owner (either the women or her landlord) to deal with the situation. If she rents, maybe you could find and go directly to the owner, and see if they'll do anything about it. If there isn't an HOA, you could put up a stockade fence above the line of the current wall, to block the kids out (an HOA may not allow that.)

That's actually not the case, it actually just makes the surface not something they want to land on so they avoid the area.

In our case there was no HOA involved. The unsupervised kids just climbed our fence and played in the street. Dodging and boucing off passing cars. The part-time mom and her landlord did nothing. When I showed CPS my videos, the whole family was gone in a month.

It's a little hard for a bird to try a glued area. When they land, they're stuck. I won't use the stuff anymore.

In this case I have absolutely no reason to believe my neighbor is actually neglecting the kids. Infact she appears to be very good with them when they are interacting with her. They just seem oblivious that not everyone may be as charmed by their children as they are. I'm pleased to see kids playing rather than sitting in front of a TV but they aren't old enough to be unsupervised based on their behavior. And I mean I got up to see what my DOGS were up to...I at least would think a parent would have at least that much of a response.

Thank you for the suggestions.
It appears the husband is out of town, so I will wait and speak to him when gets home. Cameras will be going up tomorrow.
