Cercaricidal action of copper sulphate, copper acetate, copper chloride and copper nitrate was tested on the cercariae of Schistosoma haematobium under laboratory conditions. Copper chloride was found to be the most effective compound, followed by copper acetate and copper sulphate. The results obtained with copper nitrate showed that it exerts a weak effect on the control of cercariae. The LC50 for copper sulphate, copper acetate and copper chloride was 1.25, 1.05 and 0.6 mg/1/hour respectively. The LC90 for copper sulphate, copper acetate and copper chloride was 1.95, 1.65 and 1.20 respectively.
