Abstract:
Bellamya bengalensis is one of the most important edible protein sources having great economic importance. Here the experiment was conducted to study the impact of Alpha Cypermethrin (10 EC) emphasizing on different physiological aspects on Bellamya bengalensis. It has been found that exposure of the test animal in different concentrations of Alpha Cypermethrin lead to various physiological changes like mucous secretion, floating behavior, avoidance reaction. Considering the chronic toxicity, exposed to 0.0015ppm of Alpha Cypermethrin for 7 days expressed an increase in glass surface adhesion of haemocytes and maximum percentage of haemocyte aggregation was recorded in 0.0015ppm of pesticide formulation for 7 and 10 days of exposure.
