take equal amount of boric powder, whear flour and sugar and make a dough of it. apply it in small balls or paste in the corners. cockoraches, insects will disappear in few days. Do this after every two to three months. For ants, put hing (asafoetida) in the corners and ants will run away.

Dear editor, this is a nice article. I got professional pest control done twice in my house from herbal sprayers. believe me this is v. effective. it is totally odourless, harmless and gets rid of cockroaches, ants, lizards at the snap of a finger. but i found it expensive. i paid Rs. 1200 for a 3- bedroom house.

indian pests are no comparison to these ...

Dining room wood flooring
Hi, I am changing my home flooring and have decided to go for hard-wood flooring for the drawing room. Which flooring would you suggest that looks really nice and attractive and is practical? I am leaning towards cherry wood. Is it a good pick or not? I look forward to a good advice.... - Sarla [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for your Drawing room
Dear Sarla, hi. Wow hard wood floor is a great idea. Cherry wood is a great choice! It comes in a rich brown to black color range. It will look great in your dining room and living room. You can throw in a rug under your furniture in the seating area. It will preserve your flooring and also look nice and classy.... - Ritika [View Message]
Cherry hard wood flooring
Hey Saral! You should know your wood. Cherry is much softer wood type and it reacts to sunlight as it has a tendency to become darker. Also since it is softer you would have to think about preservation. Do not use it in high traffic area with kids and pets as it will get scratched and ruined in time. Use it sparingly in dining rooms primarily. If your living room is not ov... - Krishna [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for rooms
Hi, what wood flooring should I use for the kitchen, hallways and rooms? They are obviously going to be in use all the time. The kids will run around, and we also have a dog. These rooms are high traffic areas and as much as I like cherry, I know it won’t be a good idea. What flooring should we use? Thanks for your help.... - Sarla [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for high traffic areas
Hi Sarla. I would suggest Hickory as a choice for hard wood flooring for the kitchen and other high traffic areas. It is harder variety of hardwood and it has grain pattern and color that will remain the same for years. It also has rustic smell that stays on and is usually well liked.... - Ritika [View Message]
Choices on Hardwood flooring for high traffic area
Hey Sarla! There are three more resilient choices for the high traffic areas. You can actually look into teak, rosewood and Brazilian cherry wood and see what prices and look suits you the most. Teak is from the deciduous variety and its natural grain is both water and insect resistant. Brazilian cherry is not cherry at all, it is closer to Mahogany. It comes in a rich bro... - Krishna [View Message]
