Molluscs are responsible for causing number of diseases in humans like abdominal pain, dysentery, bloody stools, urogenital and neurological disorders. Molluscicides which are commonly used to control molluscs (snails, motts and slugs) are synthetic ones. These pesticides have high import cost and leads to various problems of toxicity in non-targeted organisms, also cause environmental hazards (destruction of fish, birds and other wild life) and increase resistance among molluscs. So plant molluscicides have gained importance because of their potent action, less resistance and greater biodegradable rate. In this review an attempt has been made to signify the natural control of molluscs including plants extracts and secondary metabolites present in them. More than fifty plant drugs mentioned in tabular form in this article and all this information has been incorporated from scientific databases.



Molluscs, Plants, Schistosoma.
