The acetone extract of leaf has a great value to control the harmful aquatic snails (Lymnaea acuminata), and other molluscan pests as shown by the molluscicidal potential (Chauhan & Singh, 2010) against freshwater snail (an intermediate host of liver fluke in cattle and livestock).
Lymnaea columella (Say, 1817) is one of the main snail species, which participates in the life cycle of helminthes, and has been reported as intermediate host by trematodes of the families Fasciolidae, Haematoloechidae, Prosthogonimidae, Plagiorchiidae and Echinostomatidae (Olsen, 1974; Abilio and Watanabe, 1998; Carvalho et al., 2001; Pinheiro et al., 2009).
Similar relationships and exponents have been reported previously for the same species (Randall, 1964) and in other gastropods such as Buccinum undatum (Kideys, 1998), Haliotis fulgens (Farias et al., 2003), Lymnaea stagnalis (Zonneveld & Kooijman, 1989), Nerita peloronta, N.
