Objective: We found from present study effect of alkaloid extract of Cordia myxa on some stages of Musca domestica (third instar larvae and pupa with 24h.and 72h) the results showed that leaves affected performance in some stages of Musca domestica have increased distortions numbers for treatments(third instar larvae and pupa with 24h.and72h) compared to control treatment. Also results showed death of all naturally emergence insects for all treatment compared to control treatment. Methods: The alkaloid extract tested against larvae and pupae of Musca domestica the efficacy test was achieved at different concentrations (2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10mg/ml) The Results: results showed differences in treatments of third instar larvae and pupa with age 24h. and 72h. Also showed results increased numbers of distortions for larvae and pupa compared to control treatment. Conclusion: The results described in this study the alkaloid extract showed distortions and differences in treatments (direct spray for larvae, spray pupa with age 24h. and 72h. The best concentration in alkaloid extract was 10 mg/ml. The best treatments in alkaloid extract were the treatment of pupa with age 24h, in concentration 10mg/ml, Varied mortality rates of larvae and pupa to all treatment and to all concentrations.
