The observed Parameters are, morphology changes and behavior, the start time of the death (hours), lethal time 50 (hours),  daily mortality (%), total mortality (%), temperature and humidity.  The results showed that the concentration of 90 grams/liter of water was an effective concentration for controlling rice bug pest control with an initial death time of 3.50 hours, lethal time 50 15.25 hours after application and a total mortality of 85%.
