The use of cashew nut shell of caju (Anacardium occidentale) as an alternative molluscicide

Bioassays using hexanolic extracts of nut shells of Anacardium occidentale, collected in Ceara, Brazil in 1972 (Sample 1) and 1987 (Sample 2) were undertaken with adult, snails and egg masses of Biomphalaria glabrata, B. tenagophila and B. straminea both in the laboratory and in the field. Non-extracted shells, 18.5 g, sample 1, were also tested with adult snails and egg masses of the 3 species. The toxicity of the extracts was tested with fish (Poecilia reticulata) and tadpoles.
