This study aims to investigate the temperature - humidity Index on in dates palms Dubas in farms of Al Jazir at Qaryat State, in order to answer the following questions: 1- What are the reasons beyond the spread of the Dubas in the village of Al-Jazir? 2- What is the effect of temperature and humidity on Dubas palm insect? This project was implemented in the village of Al-Jazir. The people noticed the spread of Dubas, which causes damage, so we decided to plan to act , started visits to investigate the two regions of Al-Jazir. We conducted taking of site measures coordinates, temperature and humidity index of Al Jazir village, we found that there is no distance of seven meters. Through the interview we found that the reasons is that farmers don’t take care of the palms, irregular cultivation, high density between palms, and the effect of humidity and heat. We created a vaccine anti-palm bug, we noticed the bug’s died quickly (which is a juice of basil, pepper and lemon juice) we sent it to the General Directorate of Agricultural Research, Fisheries and Water Resources in Muscat; To know the affects the insect, because of the insect’s dormancy during the month of February, we are waiting for the result of the effect of the vaccine on the insect. We concluded that there is a relationship between temperature, humidity and the insect spread increase through the data of the Meteorological Center, the temperature and humidity index in this year at the state of Quriyatis higher than the previous years. The most important recommendations are to educate farmers about the need to take continuous care of trees, leaving a distance of seven meters, and address the competent authorities to treat this type of insects.
