Everything from weeds and pest becoming immune to the latest made made chemical concoction and now this article about the ever present Cockroach !
www.nydailynews.com...




Cockroaches are being born impervious to bug sprays and it’s happening fast.

A Purdue University study found that the commonly found German species of roaches are being born with an immunity to toxins with which they haven’t yet been in contact. The shocking study, published on Live Science, concluded the evolution of the German cockroach, also called the Blattella germanica, develops an immunity to new poisons in as quickly as one generation of offspring.

“We didn’t have a clue that something like that could happen this fast,”study co-author Michael Scharf said. “Cockroaches developing resistance to multiple classes of insecticides at once will make controlling these pests almost impossible with chemicals alone.”


And yet some people can not understand how evolution works and swears it is a false theory or it can't happen...

Flame Throwers are pretty effective.

I bet they still die when you step on them.

I never use bug sprays. That stuff will give you cancer...
Shoe, tobacco based bug repellent or an air rifle (for extra large spiders only) are my go-to methods.

This happens in humans too and all species. That's how it works.

But it's astonishing how quickly this immunity is developed; this mutation is likely due to the cockroach's ability to withstand even radiation or live a week without a head. However im afraid it's not evolution working this quickly on an isolated scale. Roaches can survive more than any other fauna, it's just a survival mutation like all the others they have.


This was a strange experiment, no paper to go with it

Evolutionists are out in full force lately lol. Show me a species becoming something different totally evolving. Not mutations , evolving. Mutations will certainly increase now more than ever though with all the chemicals and dangerous frequencies that are present in society these days... especially cell phone radiation/frequencies. There are experiments showing things of that nature mutating red blood cells. We got a real s**t show ahead of us. But the Bible foretold all of this madness. The prophecies are unfolding...

Mutating is a form of evolving. It happens very slowly. The earth is BILLIONS of years old. The human mind cannot process how long of time that is... think how long ago even 500 years seems, now try to imagine a billion years ago and what can change during that time.

You can see it all around you if you care to look. Different races of people with varying characteristics from their environment. Slanted eyes in Asia. Dark skin in Africa. White skin in Europe.

Given how quickly cockroaches breed, it is really isn't that surprising.

Geckos. Let them run loose in infested buildings. They eat bugs like roaches, are nocturnal and harmless, a perfect predator. The only down side is they don't hibernate in cold weather, they poop and need water. Plus some people think they are basically pests and are frightened of them.

Give them a ficus tree to live in a a dish of water to drink. Their poop is like bird droppings and not so hard to clean up. I have a crested gecko and even though he isn't the most affectionate pet, he's OK with being held once in a while and requires the same temperatures as humans to be healthy and comfortable. They don't make any noise, live a really long time and don't require much attention either.

ETA: They are pricey at the pet store though, but breed well in captivity.

Spray bottle with dish soap and water in it. 20 water:1 dish soap. Spray them and the suffocate quicker than if you sprayed them with raid and you don't have harmful chemicals in the air. Friend taught me that

Stomping on 'em seems to work, or so I'm told...


When an organism adapts to resist certain things it will not necessarily retain the immunity to previous threats.

Why would you kill spiders? they eat cockroaches, don't be a pussy..scoop em up and put them outside.

As for the cockroaches..not surprising, they will be the only thing left when it's all gone

Then just use cedar oil. It kills on contact.

The Rats might fair just as well if not better.

Their intelligence can be rather astonishing at times.

And they also have the ability to mutate so their next generation of offspring are immune or at least a lot less susceptible to toxins and poisons.

That's because it clashes with their religion. Evolution is a perfectly good scientific theory with plenty of evidence and works for all but the religious radicals.
