Why do pathogen-laden cockroaches avoid colloidal silver-treated floor tiles like the plague? The answer just might surprise you! See below…
Here's a fascinating study from 2006 published in the journal International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation.
It demonstrates that treating laminate wood flooring with colloidal silver produces an environmentally friendly flooring product that destroys up to 98.9% of bacteria, and (now get this)...
...it also keeps COCKROACHES off the flooring up to 88% of the time when compared to standard laminate flooring.
Why Do Cockroaches Avoid Colloidal Silver?
Now that's amazing, I think you'll agree!
Of course, the researchers still don’t know why the cockroaches avoided the silver-laminate flooring like the plague…
…But cockroaches are notorious spreaders of germs and disease. They live in a symbiotic relationship with the germs they carry on their bodies and spread….
…and spreading germs is practically their entire purpose in life.
So just maybe the cockroaches were able to sense the silver-impregnated flooring tiles were actually detrimental to their life’s purpose!
The Symbiotic Relationship
Between Pathogens and Cockroaches
I personally speculate it's because roaches live symbiotically with many different forms of pathogens, similar to the way tiny pilot fish live with huge sharks…
…They have a symbiotic relationship, in which each benefits the other.
And thus the roaches avoid the silver-impregnated floor tiles because they do whatever they can to protect the tiny microbes they carry.
It is well known that roaches are one of the most important vectors for the transmission of germs and disease.
According to the National Pest Control Association, cockroaches can contaminate food and transmit disease carrying organisms, including staphylococci, strep, coliform molds, salmonella, yeast’s and clostridia.
They also spread parasites that cause toxoplasmosis, an illness that can causes birth defects if the pregnant women gets infected.
According to Stoy Hedges, an entomologist and Director of Technical Services at Terminix International:
"There has been some research with cockroaches. There are probably more than 50 disease causing organisms that have been isolated from cockroach bodies."
According to Dr. Xing Ping Hu, an assistant professor of entomology at Auburn University:
"What we do know is that cockroaches are known carriers of many different diseases. That includes 32 bacterial and 17 fungal-related diseases, three protozoa- related illnesses and two viruses."
So maybe it should come as no surprise to us that cockroaches avoid substances that could harm their symbiotic little passengers.
Regardless, they avoided those silver-impregnated floor tiles as if their lives depended upon it. And that little-known piece of information can only be good for you –
-- especially if you own a high-quality colloidal silver generator like the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from www.TheSilverEdge.com!
Why Pay Through the Nose
For Silver-Impregnated Floor Tiling?
You see, the ultimate goal of a study like this is to lay the groundwork for flooring manufacturers to produce an expensive laminate wood flooring product impregnated with colloidal silver that can be sold to homeowners.
Of course, silver is costly. And silver-impregnated flooring would be a pretty pricey item. (But if you hate germs and cockroaches…price may be no object to you.)
Nevertheless, my question is this:
Why pay through the nose for expensive laminate wood flooring impregnated with colloidal silver, when you can just add colloidal silver to your mop bucket every time you mop your floors?
Or why not just spray some colloidal silver around baseboards and garbage cans and other areas where cockroaches tend to hide?
Obviously, if you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality colloidal silver generator such as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from www.TheSilverEdge.com...
...it would cost you just a few PENNIES a week to add some colloidal silver to your mop water, or to lightly spray key areas of your house, in order to more thoroughly protect your home against the spread of bacteria AND THE ROACHES THAT CARRY THEM.
Hey, you can't beat that, my friend!
A few pennies worth of protection each week to keep the germs AND the cockroaches away? You sure can count me in on that!
And because you’re adding the colloidal silver to each mopping, or simply spraying key areas in kitchens, bathrooms and hallways whenever needed, you’ll enjoy protection from nasty bacteria and pests like cockroaches FOREVER…
…whereas if you instead opted for the expensive, new silver-impregnated laminate flooring, the protection would eventually wear away as the embedded silver wore out.
