The current study was carried out in order to evaluate the insecticidal and antimicrobial activity of Elaeagnus conferta Roxb fruit extract. Mimusops elengi L. and (Elaeagnaceae) (the Sapotaceae). Insecticidal activity was evaluated against larvae II and III of the species Anopheles. Agar well diffusion and poisoned food technique were used to assess the antibacterial and antifungal function of fruit extracts, respectively. Both fruit extracts were effective against larvae of the species Anopheles, showing marked larvicidal activity by the extract of E. Conferta, Conferta.
