The Guardians not enough to defeat the flood?

As far as I get the lore of Halo. The Guardians was in use when the flood was there in the past, so I am just wondering why they wouldn’t be enough?

Logic plague would probably just convert them to their side.

That or star roads would just crush them.

It’s a case of 343 building bigger threats without realizing they could easily wipe out the previously established bigger threat.

they’re machines not life. flood couldn’t do that. However the flood spreads rapidly among life and it would almost impossible to stop even for the guardians.

That’s a good point. If one Guardian can police a solar system, I’m surprised an army of them couldn’t stop the flood.

But hey, maybe they’re more about destroying ships/suppressing planets. We know a single spore can destroy a species, so I don’t think anything short of a Halo ring can destroy the Flood completely.
