Magnetic water was used as an attractive reagent of snails, Monacha cartusiana, to pick more pesticides namely Thiamethoxam and Diafenthiuron, under laboratory conditions for 24 hours. Toxicity, synergism and food consumption rate were assessed in the presence and absence of magnetic water. Without magnetic water Thiamethoxam showed higher activity with LC50 (5300 μl/l) than Diafenthiuron LC50 (6500 μl/l). With magnetic water, the toxicity clearly increased as the LC50s observed, were 1900 and 3300 μl/l of Thiamethoxam and Diafenthiuron, respectively, with synergism ratios 2.79 and 1.97% .Results revealed that mixtures of molluscicides and magnetic water could increase toxicity against M. cartusiana effectively.
