The study was conducted for the period 10/15/2021 until 15/12/2021, where different concentrations (1, 1.5, 2%) of different extracts of propolis were targeted during the period of decimation of nymphs and adults. Where the results showed the effect of the organic extracts (ethanolic alcohol and hexane) of the wormwood plant, which showed effectiveness in controlling insect nymphs from green peach in the laboratory. 36.67 and 30.00%) after 24 hours and (45.67 and 42.00%) after 72 hours, respectively, compared with the comparison factor that gave a killing rate of 0.00 for the period 24 and 72 hours. 6.67%). As for the adults, it was shown that the hexane extract of propolis gave the highest killing rate in terms of concentrations and periods. A concentration of 2% gave a killing rate of 25.66 and 37.22 for the 24 hour period and (35.22 and 45.00) for the 72 hour period compared with the comparison that gave 0.00 for the period 24 and 72 hours. For hexane and ethanolic extract (3.33 and 6.73)
