The normality had shown that the data of these insect were not normally distributed. Hence, Kruskal wallis was tested to identify significant different among different time of collection. It showed that all these insect were not significant except true bug among different time of collection.The result from T- test shown that LB (F = 56.951; df= 78; p<O.OO) and TB (F = 46.803; df= 78; p<0.05) were significant while GF (F = 2.674; df = 78; p> 1.00) and FF (F = 6.042; df = 78; p> 2.62) were not significant among different time of collection. This study also found that True bug has the largest population with 31% compared with another three insect while Fruit fly is the lowest population with only 17% found in this field.
