Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

You Vs. Ants

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 11:32 PM

Ants have careersSummary: While some call the exterminator, others attempt to perform pest control on their own. Keep these things in mind when getting rid of ants in your home.

Deciding to take care of an ant problem on your own is a big decision. Initially you have two choices. You can either do it yourself with some store-bought products or you can call a professional exterminator. There are benefits and drawbacks to choosing either method. Exterminators have the experience, technology and products to treat the problem faster, but doing it yourself can save you money.

There is pest control for pests, and then there is pest control for ants. Make no mistake that the two are not the same. Excuse my language, but normal critters around the house like roaches, crickets and spiders are, for lack of a better phrase, not very smart. They just scatter and wonder to and fro looking for food and water. Ants, on the other hand, are brilliant. They work in organized and complex colonies. They can detect danger. They have exit and retreat strategies. They are well educated.

If you're the kind that likes to try your hand at the do-it-yourself method before calling for backup, then here are a few home-cooked recipes to consider. I disclaim that I have not tried any of these methods. I'm just passing along ideas.

Tansy leaves. 

 Get Rid Of AntsWord has it that if you place tansy leaves in the corners of your kitchen, it acts as a natural repellant. As far as I can find, just placing the plain leaves in the corners should do the trick. There should be no need to adjust the leaves into an alternative form. Sounds easy enough.

Cream of Wheat. 

Not sure what to do what that extra cream of wheat that has been sitting in your kitchen cupboard for the last six months? Try feeding it to the ants. Supposedly it will expand after the ants have ingested it, causing them to explode. (It would be really neat if they exploded in a fireball, but we can't be too demanding in life.)

Mint flavor. 

Mint is a natural odor that ants do not like. I have heard of people using mint leaves or extract in different forms. I've even heard of buying a pack of mint gum and leaving an open piece in all the drawers in the kitchen. Not sure if the gum suggestions will work, but at least you'll have some gum to chew on if it doesn't.

Ok. It's at least worth a shot to get ride of a few pestering ants from your house. A few other tried and tested prevention ideas include correcting any water leaks on you property, make sure there are not wood piles or braches pressed up against the house.
