The Problem and its Background
Over the years, insects greatly contribute much with ecological balance in nature yet it also dramatically causes economic problems like the loss of production the crops due to the damage that they made and the cost of the attempt to prevent or control the problem. Through it, the insects killing agents is created commonly known as insecticide. However, the widespread and long term use of the product resulted in too many problems. Many are toxic to humans and others are concentrated in the air contamination. Thus, the researcher came up with an eco-friendly and safer insecticide extracted from Chili Pepper (Capsicum annuum) leaves and Orange (Citrus sinensis) peelings.

Background of the Study There are two aspects of economic problems caused by insects such as the termites. One concern to the health of humans. The other one concerns the cost of the attempt to prevent or control such production losses. Termites are a constant threat to houses. Insects killing agents is created which is called insecticide. Hence, the purpose of this research is to produce an eco- friendly and safer pesticide. Bio- insecticide are usually less toxic than conventional insecticides. It generally affects only the target insects. It is often effective in very small quantities and decomposes quickly, thereby resulting in lower exposure and largely avoiding the pollution problems caused by conventional insecticide. This bio- insecticide are derived from such natural materials like plants. For example, the Chili Pepper leaves extracts have insecticide application and considered as bio- insecticide. All life on Earth depends directly or indirectly on the
