Phytophagous coleopteran insects representing 12 families, 52 genera and 61 species, hemipteran insects 7 families, 18 genera and 20 species, homopteran insects 4 families, 16 genera and 21 species, hymenopteran insects 2 families, 2 genera and 3 species, and orthopteran 2 familes, 6 genera and 6 species were recorded from 58 weeds. Some chrysomelids and orthopteran insects were potential agents for biological control of weeds.
