In the following chapters of this guide, each molluscicide compound is described using the topics in the following format. Here, the topics are introduced with general information and definitions of terms related to how the compounds are used. Refer to these definitions when assessing the guidelines for individual compounds. Many of these concepts are further defined and discussed by Claudi and Mackie (1994).
The source of information on individual compounds has been primarily the product label and its Materials Safety and Data Sheet (MSDS). Both of these documents are available from the manufacturer or vendor (and may be posted on the Internet), and are required by law to be in the possession of the user at the time of molluscicide use.
