Abstract

 A study was conductedto determine thethe effects of two insect pathogenic fungiMetarhizium anisopliae and Beauvaria bassiana In biological control and comparing, insecticide, Icon, on larva , pupa and adults stage of house fly  was tested. The results  revealed non-significantly superiority differences in the percentages of cumulative death between the recommended concentration of Icon and the M.anisopliae(2 × 1011), but the results showed, significant difference in accumulation death between M. anisoplia ( 2 × 1011 ) and  B. bassiana were found at the same concentration, the accumulation death of  M.anisoplia reached to 100, 80, 95% for larval, pupa and stage after 96  hours respectively,  compared with  the accumulation death of B. bassiana  ( 2 × 1011 ), 77.5, 70,82.5%, after 96hours respectively.The pesticide showedA significant impact on the larval and adult as the ratio of the cumulative death reached two phases of 100% after 24 hours of treatment,While the pesticide did not show a significant impact in the pupa stage as mortality rate reached 5% at this stage after 96 hours of treatment, possibly due to the nature of the pupa that do not feed as in the larval and adult
