Chemical insecticide has been used for many years to eradicate insects as disease vector, in which causing negative effects not only to those of target insects but also to the environment both in the short and long term. Therefore, it is necessary to determine an alternative biological control of this insect by using natural insecticide (bioinsecticide), such as using fungi as entomopathogen. As microorganism, fungi, contain of bioactive compound with their toxicity could kill the target insect from larvae to adults, called entomopathogen fungi. This entomopathogen fungi are presumably eco-friendly and able to produce toxic compound which can kill target insect such as cyclopeptida destruxin A, B, C, D and desmethyldestruxin B. Two of the fungi which known to be entomopathogenic are Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana. Yet, there should be more others, therefore it is necessary to explore and isolate any potential bio-insecticide of entomopatogen fungi for disease vectors such as from flies (Musca domestica) and cockroach (Periplaneta americana). This study found three isolated fungi from flies (L1, L2, L3). They were Geotrichum sp., Penicillium sp., and Aspergillus sp. Three isolated fungi from cockroach (K1, K2, K3) were also found, they were identified as Aspergillus sp., except for K3 Penicillium sp.
