In this study, twenty species from twelve plant families were tested for potential effectiveness against Orosanga japonica control on nymph. Methanol extracts mortality rates were generally found to be higher than ethyl acetate extracts. Most effective plant crude extracts were Salvia verticillate (Lamiaceae) and Daucus carota (Apiaceae) respectively. Consequently, we reported the high or moderate potential insecticidal activity against Orosanga nymphs from eleven different plant families extract. That is why, we recommend extensive and more detailed study for the establish biological based control methods against invasive Orosanga japonica in Black Sea countries.
