By means of green synthesis and to control culex pipiens, new silver non-particles (AgNPs) were synthesized depending on soil fungus Metarhizium anisopliae and proposed a Metarhizium anisopliae-based. The silver Nano particles were synthesized by Metarhizium anisopliae, In present study, different larval stages and pupae of Cx. pipiens mosquitoes were treated with four different concentrations of Metarhizium anisopliae and silver nanoparticles. All the collected data were from instrumental analysis like UV-vis spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Atomic force microscopic analysis (AFM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) which usually confirms the structure and the identification of the biosynthesis of AgNPs. The e effectiveness tests were carried out in different time using different concentrations. The larvae of Cx. pipiens shows 100% mortality to the prepared AgNPs after// h of get in touch with, whereas, the pupae of Cx. pipiens were fewer liable to the novel AgNPs. the research concluded that the new synthesis of Metarhizium anisopliae silver nanoparticles can be used as greener method for safe environment vector control strategy throughout a biological management.
