Abstract Endemicity and seasonality of transmission of Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium were studied in Ile-Ife, south western Nigeria. Transmission of S. mansoni was demonstrated throughout the year in a man-made dam, whereas transmission of S. haematobium in a stream only occurred in the dry season. This difference in the transmission patterns should be considered when incorporating community-based focal plant molluscicide application in the integrated strategy for the control of schistosomiasis morbidity.
