Effect of sub-lethel doses of molluscicides on the susceptibility of Bulinus truncatus snails to infection with Schistosoma haematobium



Effect of sub-lethel doses of molluscicides on the susceptibility of Bulinus truncatus snails to infection with Schistosoma haematobium



Egyptian Journal of Bilharziasis 1(1): 85-90



Laboratory experiments on the susceptibility to infection with Schistosoma haematobium of Bulinus truncatus hatched from egg masses treated for 24 hours with copper sulphate (0.2 and 0.3 ppm), sodium pentachlorophenate (0.1 and 0.2 ppm) or Bayluscide (0.01 and 0.02 ppm) revealed a slight reduction in the infection rate as compared with controls. Greater reductions were obtained by exposing young snails to the same concentrations of molluscicides. Field treatments in early and later summer are recommended.
