The molluscicidal effect of sodium pentachlorophenate and calcium arsenite on Oncomelania hupensis, a snail host of Schistosoma japonicum in China



The molluscicidal effect of sodium pentachlorophenate and calcium arsenite on Oncomelania hupensis, a snail host of Schistosoma japonicum in China



Japanese Journal of Medical Science and Biology 11: 1/2, 15-20



Komiya et al. showed that sodium pentachlorophenate manufactured in China and that manufactured in Japan were equally effective against Oncomelania hupensis, killing 100% of the snails after 48 hours at a concentration of 128 p.p.m. Calcium arsenite also produced a 100% kill in 48 hours if applied at the rate of 4, 100 p.p.m. when the soil of the habitat was sufficiently wet. The latter compound, being insoluble, may be more useful when adjacent water is used for domestic purposes, farm animals or fish culture.
