Muscadomestica, under laboratory conditions. This study showed that theeffect of these extracts on the mortality rate of eggs, different larval instart and pupal stage stas well as the cumulative and non-cumulative mortality rates of immature stages , weights and lengths of pupa which were produced from treatment . The results showed that the cold water extractwas more effective tham boiled water extract on percentage of mortality the percentage of egg was ( 81 ) % in the concentration2% compoal with (1)%at control treatment . The 1st, 2nd , 3rd larval instants were (98.33) at concentration 2% comporal with (7.66) at control treatment
