House flies (M. domestica) are mechanical vectors of various diseases by microbial pathogens including Salmonella which causes typhoid fever, Shigella causes dysentery, and E. coli causes diarrhea. Generally, controlling M. domestica uses synthetic insecticides, but it causes resistance and has a negative impact on the environment. Therefore, there is a need for alternative control, namely biological control using entomopathogenic fungal isolates as bioinsecticides. This study begins with the isolation of entomopathogenic fungi using the moist chamber method with fly house larvae as insect bait. Fungus that grow on larvae are cultured and purified on PDA medium and then identified. Identification was carried out through macroscopic observations including colony color and diameter and microscopic observations including conidia, conidiophores, hyphae, vesicles, fialids, and leg cells. The results of isolation and identification obtained five types of isolates, namely Aspergillus sp. 1, Aspergillus sp. 2, Geotrichum sp., Penicillium sp., and Aspergillus sp. 3. Keywords: entomopatogenic fungi, identification, isolation, M. domestica
