Stop Termites With Colloidal Silver

A reader recently wrote that she had used her homemade colloidal silver to spray an infestation of termites under her home.

She said she sprayed the affected area several times over the course of a week, and the termites disappeared.

She says there’s no sign of them at all. But she’s going to continue spraying every few days for several weeks in case they’ve laid eggs.

Can Silver Actually Stop Termites?

The idea that colloidal silver could stop a termite infestation doesn’t surprise me. After all, back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s the federal government was investigating the use of silver particles as a wood preservative to help prevent termite infestation as well as mold contamination.

And guess what they found? They discovered that when ionic silver was pressure-treated into the wood as a wood preservative, it inhibited termite damage “with 100 percent mortality of termites.”

And why did the silver work so well on these insects, when it has always been thought that silver only kills single-celled organisms like germs, viruses and fungi? According to the authors of one study on this topic:

“The digestive systems of termites contain protozoa that aid in the breakdown of cellulose into more easily metabolized carbohydrates.

Because of its antimicrobial properties, silver has the potential to dispose of these organisms in the termite gut, disrupting the digestive cycle and resulting in the death of the insect.”

In other words, when the termites ate the silver-treated wood, the silver killed the bacteria that live in the termite’s gut. The termites depend upon these bacteria to process the wood they eat into life-sustaining nutrients.

For example, the microbes in a termite’s gut assist in the breakdown of cellulose – a major constituent of wood and other plant fibers – turning it into carbohydrates, and then into short-chain fatty acids which the termites thrive on.

So, if the wood is drenched in silver, and the termites eat the silver, it kills off the bacteria in their tiny gut which they depend upon for the conversion of their food to nutrition. No nutrition, they die. It’s as simple as that.

More Studies

In another study on the use of silver against termites, the authors treated various blocks of wood with five different concentrations of silver – 0.1 ppm, 1 ppm, 5 ppm, 10 ppm and 15ppm. They then placed those blocks of wood near different colonies of termites for two weeks.

The researchers then examined the treated blocks of wood and the termite colonies, finding that the 15 ppm block killed the most termites, the fastest. Indeed, it achieved a 100% kill rate in the first 9 days.

The lower concentrations also killed the termites, but it took longer, with the 0.1 ppm (one-tenth of one ppm) concentration doing the least damage to the termites.

The researchers concluded:

“Conclusively, this study showed that mycosynthesized silver nanoparticles are very effective protecting the wood from damaging not only from termite but also from wood deteriorating fungus. Further study should be undertaken to bring this approach at commercial scale.”

And in a study titled “Performance of New Silver-Based Wood Preservatives,” the authors wrote:

“Research carried out independently by US Forest Products Laboratory (Madison, WI) has established that… biocidal silver formulations repel termites. These products work in almost all naturally occurring soil pH levels and have very low leaching propensities in soil and water environments.”

In yet another study, silver nanoparticles achieved 100% mortality of termites within only three days.

Finally, according to a white paper produced by the London Bullion Market Association (which tracks the wide variety of commercial uses for silver):

“Wood preservation shows great potential use for silver biocides… Research conducted at the Department of Agriculture’s Forest Product laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin, shows that silver-embedded treatments are effective in improving the resistance of wood to termites.”

And in countries like India, silver is already being used in termite bait traps and barrier treatments like in the photo below.

These traps – which consist of a piece of silver-treated wood inside of a plastic container with holes in it for the termites to crawl through – are generally buried in shallow holes around the perimeter of a wooden home.

Termite bait traps with silver

In India, termite “bait traps” and “barrier treatments” using silver-embedded wood are quite popular. The traps are simply buried in shallow holes around the perimeter of the wooden home. When termites enter the trap to eat the wood, the silver kills them.

When termites enter the trap to eat the wood, the silver kills them. Thus, the traps function as an effective barrier to termites trying to get to the wooden home.

As you can see, silver really does work against termites. And science knows it.

But while silver has been studied for several decades as a replacement for the toxic chemicals used in pressure-treating wood against termite damage, its cost – it is a precious metal, after all – has been the main factor preventing it’s more widespread use in the lumber industry, which has opted for less expensive copper chemical treatments.

But if you have a small termite outbreak in your home, perhaps you might consider spraying the affected area with colloidal silver, several times a day, for about a week, like the lady I mentioned at the beginning of this article did.

Perhaps you, too, will find that you’ve saved yourself a lot of money in termite treatments!


The Ultimate Colloidal Silver ManualWhy Has the FDA Banned Information On Colloidal Silver?

Over the past decade thousands of Americans have quietly abandoned the use of prescription antibiotic drugs and have turned instead to the use of safe, natural colloidal silver.

In fact, when people discovered they could cure the vast majority of their own infections – quickly, safely and effectively with just a few dollar’s worth of colloidal silver – word began to spread rapidly among the American public.

Big Pharma Sucks

The giant pharmaceutical companies quickly realized they would soon be losing tens of millions of dollars annually in sales of their expensive prescription antibiotic drugs if they didn’t do something about it.

Initially, they demanded that the FDA ban the sale of colloidal silver altogether. But try as they might, the FDA couldn’t find sufficient grounds for a ban.

After all, colloidal silver has a fully documented 90-year medical history of safety and effectiveness!

Not to be stopped, the big drug firms rapidly switched gears: They began pressuring the FDA to restrict the public’s access to information about colloidal silver.

They simply didn’t want any more people to learn how powerful and effective colloidal silver really is against infectious microorganisms and the deadly diseases they can cause.

Final Ruling…

And in a move that has stunned the medical community, the FDA promptly bowed to the wishes of the global pharmaceutical giants, placing into law the infamous new “Final Ruling” on colloidal silver in July 1999.

In spite of its medically documented 90-year history of safe and effective use, the FDA actually ruled that colloidal silver can no longer be sold in the United States if it is described as an infection-fighting agent!

Instead, it can now only be described as a “mineral supplement.”

If it is described as anything else in the advertising and labeling, the FDA can shut down the offending company and confiscate its inventory!

In essence, the FDA has ruled that the American public no longer has the right to know what a powerful and medically proven infection fighting agent colloidal silver is!

How Could This Happen?

How could this happen in America today?

The truth is, it has become abundantly clear that the FDA is now little more than the enforcement arm of the major drug companies!

Literally billions of dollars in profits are pocketed annually by these pharmaceutical giants thanks to the monopoly they hold on the sale of expensive prescription antibiotic drugs.

And safe, natural colloidal silver is considered to be the biggest threat of all to that multi-billion dollar annual monopoly on prescription antibiotics.

Of course, anything that threatens those kinds of profits – and promises to put the power to heal infections back into the hands of average Americans – must be regulated into oblivion.

And the FDA’s perverse “medical Gestapo” now uses the infamous 1999 “Final Ruling” to do just that!

The First Amendment Rules!

Thankfully, the word about the phenomenal medical history behind colloidal silver, and its amazing proven infection-fighting qualities still manages to leak out under the First Amendment.

Through books, news articles, newsletters, and independent media that are not beholden to Big Pharma, the public is gradually catching on. The facts are slowly emerging.

And today, an estimated 10 million people throughout North America use colloidal silver to heal their own infections, and to stimulate immunity and heal illness and disease.

But the day is rapidly dawning in which all health information will be controlled by the medical bureaucrats, in spite of the First Amendment.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to learn all you can about the amazing healing and infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver, while the information is still freely available.

One thing you can do is check out The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, which, at a whopping 40 chapters and 547-pages, is literally encyclopedic in scope.

In fact, it’s been the #1 best-selling book in the world on making and using colloidal silver for the past 10 years running!

Don’t Be Left in the Dark

There’s only one way to stay ahead of the medical bureaucrats. And that’s to educate yourself while the information is still available.

So, don’t be left in the dark.

Instead, do all you can to learn about the powerful, infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver.

And then learn how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, and for less than 36 cents a quart, by clicking the link in this sentence.
