Objectives: One of the disease vectors that harms humans is the house fly. Therefore, it is necessary to control measures against the fly population. Flies control measures can be done both by physical and chemical means. For example, by using insecticides, plants that can be used as insecticides are bandotan leaves (Ageratum conyzoides L.) which are toxic to insects. The purpose of this study was to determine the endurance of house flies (Musca domestica) against water extraction of Bandotan leaves (Ageratum conyzoides L.). The method used in this research is the experimental method. The study was conducted on 10 house flies at each concentration of bandotan leaf water extract and 10 home flies used as a control. Death of house flies is caused by water extracts of bandotan leaves containing toxic compounds against insects. The results of the study note that at a concentration of 70% can kill all house flies (Musca domestica).
