The snail Lymnaea acuminata is the intermediate host of liver fluke Fasciola gigantica which causes endemic fasciolosis in cattle as well as human population of Eastern Utter Pradesh. Snail control with plant mollucicides has been one of the effective methods used for rapid and effective control of Fasciolosis. Toxicity of active molluscicidal component present in them are more potent than there synthetic counterpart. The metabolic activity of invertebrates is influenced to a large extent by change in both biotic and abiotic factors, which mainly depends on the season. These abiotic factors and bait containing plant molluscicides can significantly alter the biochemical parameters and ultimately the reproduction rate and developmental process of snail Lymnaea acuminata seasonally.
