Molluscicidal property of Azadirachta indica A. Juss (neem) against the snails Lymnaea acuminata and Indoplanorbis exustus was studied. It was observed that the molluscicidal activity of the leaf, bark, cake, neem oil and the neem-based pesticides, achook and nimbecidine, was both time- and dose-dependent. The toxic effect of pure azadirachtin against both the snails was greater than the synthetic molluscicides.
