Gastrointestinal Nematodes are one among cause decrease production efificiency in goat and sheep in Indonesia, especially parasite of abomasum namely Haemonchus contortus. This parasite causes disease of Haemonchosis causing anemia, and causes mortality to young goat or sheep. Loss of economics caused by high morbidity and  mortality this parasite so that can improve the expense of prevention and medication of this disease. This research aim was to evaluate ovicidal and larvicidal apus bamboo leaf infusion (Gigantochloa apus) against Haemonchus contortus by in vitro. Examination of apus bamboo leaves infusion to seven concentrations namely : 1.2; 1.0; 0.8,; 0.6; 0.4; 0.2;0.1; 0.05 and 0 mg / ml as negative control. Positive control uses Albendazole with concentration 0,025 mg / ml. The highest concentration 1.2 mg / ml apus bamboo leaves infusion   inhibited 92.35% egg hatching ( LC 0.49 mg / ml ) and have larvicidal activity equal to 90% ( LC50 0,47mg / ml). The concentration 1.2 mg / ml also have similar effect with positive control which use Albendazole. Phytochemical apus  bamboo leaf analysis of the highest concentration revealed the presence  tanin condensed, saponins, and alkaloids.
