Insects utilizing decaying plantain pseudo stems in Michael Okpara University and Isochi autonomous community were investigated from July 2018- September 2018. Investigation was done by cutting pseudo stems of plantain; allow them to decay before picking and sorting out insect or the macrovertebrates insect invades. orders were encountered. A total of 376 insect species were recovered as at the time of this study. Celeoptera species has the highestest members; Round beetle has the highest prevalence in the order72 (19.2%) followed by cosmopolites sordidus 37 (9.2%) Temnoschiota species 15(4.0%) while the least record was for earwig 25(14.4%) and Earth worms 92(52.%) (belonging to order Demptera (class insect) and class olisochatae (phylum annelid). C. sordidus was common in bottle locations and this indicate that crop residue play a role in maintaining pest population in any term land. The result of the study shows that same insect invades are common in plantain pseudastem in both location. Though diffining in number. There was no significant difference in the invertebrate population in both communities. The presence of C. sardidus may further buttress on the need for proper disposal of crop residues in order to eliminate pest population
