What are shipping containers for moving?

We consider the train and the ship to be the best for moving shipping containers, in which there is no any kind of trouble and the goods reach well. There are many other ways we can adopt this.

What are advantages and disadvantages of water transport?

User Avatar
Advantages: Cheapest traffic means Most important in security of nation Plays important role in international trade. Possesses high load carrying capacity. Requires cheap motor powers than for airplanes. Does not require any special infrastructure like roads, and airports. Brings many countries together. Drawbacks: Slow in speed More chances of attack on boat sailing through Only can be used when sufficient water is available. In deep sea if boat gets in to storm, it becomes difficult to rescue. In waterfalls having much drafts ,water transportation does not works. Special maintenance for water tightness of boat is required.

How can i send gun parts to Honduras?

User Avatar
First, you need to ensure the legality of the shipment, both from where you're shipping them from (I'm assuming it's the US) and where they're being received at. On the US side, you need licencing through ITARS in order to be able to export firearms, firearms components, certain firearms accessories, military surplus items, dual use technologies, etc. On the Honduran end... you should probably inquire with their embassy on this matter.

What is an effective all natural weed and grass killer?

User Avatar
Salt Salt. Pour Morton table salt between cracks in sidewalks where weeds and grass come up. Pour enough so that it is mounded up an inch or so above the sidewalk. You will be amazed! Vinegar-the wonderful weed killer. Vinegar. Or salt, but you can control your application better if you use vinegar (unless you want to go through the trouble of mixing salt with water in a high concentration). Vinegar is great for many things and when it comes to weeds, it really works, even on Ironweed, a tough cookie in our area. If you need to apply it to a weed or plant that's in the middle of other plants you don't wish to get a dose, then cut the top off of the weed or plant and dip it in the vinegar. This might take more than one treatment, of that I'm not sure. I've never done it that way. We always just pour or spray it over the area that needs treatment, and a couple of days later your weeds are dying or already dead. A Weed Killer formulation I've used for interlock brick is to mix 1 gallon white vinegar, 1 cup table salt, and 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid. I use 5% household vinegar with great success (my interlock has lots of very young, unestablished weeds). I'm told a 15%-20% strength is better, but I can't seem to find it at a reasonable cost. Other Ways To my way of thinking, salt [sodium chloride] and vinegar [dilute acetic acid] are both chemicals! For a truly non-chemical method of spot killing any unwanted weeds or grasses is boiling water, or steam from one of those hand-held generators sold for cleaning. Using this technique, I have encountered only two problems. First, if the amount and/or area of unwanted vegetation is large, it requires a lot of boiling and hauling of water. And second, if unwanted vegetation is in very close proximity to desirable plants, then great care is necessary to prevent contact of the boiling water or steam with the foliage or root system of those desirable plants which you do not want to harm. Another method for killing relatively large areas, such as for preparing for flower beds or garden plots, is to scalp mow the grass or weeds, then water well, and cover with a sheet of plastic. Stretch it as smoothly and tightly in contact with the mowed vegetation as possible, and weight it down well, especially around the edges to keep the water vapor contained. The sun will generate heat, which will be concentrated in the vegetation and soil; and water vapor, which will develop over a relatively short time, will kill the vegetation. I think this method is called solarization. Another natural method is, after scalp mowing, to simply bury the area which you want to clear of weeds with a 6-12 inch layer of any mulching material. This will kill everything, except the millions of seeds which exist in almost every cubic foot of ordinary soil. IN ADDITION Don't use the boiling water method listed above. The state I live in tried a fire ant control system called steaming. It consisted of a stainless steel probe about 4 feet long with holes on 4 sides every 6 inches. They took this rod and inserted it into fire ant mounds and applied steam to kill all the ants. It did. Bad thing, it also killed all the bacteria in the soil as well and made it sterile for at least a year. Ornamec is a very effective, selective grass killer that is safe to use around most shrubs, trees and ground covers. Crabgrass Killer is effective at killing several of the most common species of weeds.

What is the purpose of a check valve?

User Avatar
A check valve allows water to flow in only one direction, so placing one between the toilet and the main will keep water from flowing into the stool from the drain.

Is it legal to send food internationally?

User Avatar
It depends on the food, as well as the to and from locations. I have sent care packages of food and snacks from the USA to military personnel in Iraq many times and have not had a problem. You may want to check with the USDA if you are in the US, or contact your countries general health department and ask. Oooor... you can always just ship it without telling anyone, and hope Customs does not open it and then slap a big fat fine on your butt. Pick your favorite option. ;)
